Healthy Brussel Sprouts Salad

Autumn Salad! Vegan & Gluten-Free. Roasted brussel sprouts salad with butternut squash and cauliflower tossed with beans & horseradish dressing

Healthy Brussel Sprouts Salad

I’ve seen countless stories over the internet from bloggers claiming to have hated brussels sprouts…. until now! That miraculous moment when they try, try again and decide that they really do love everything about the mini green globe vegetable.

Well, this isn’t one of those stories. I’ve always loved these babies.

In fact, there are very few foods I don’t like, even as a child I would quickly clean my plate on everything from cabbage to beets to sardines.
Ok, scratch sardines, I cannot stomach the idea of tiny, tinned fish.

So, I will spare you any promises about how this recipe will make you fall in love with brussels sprouts because… I just don’t know! However, as a brussel lover, this is a pretty awesome dish. I hope brussel haters can jump on board as well but if not, I understand. See sardines above.

(feel free to keep the affair going with my no-bacon-needed sprouts.)

Fresh Brussel sprouts are the best for this recipe

Healthy Brussel Sprouts Salad

This dish was my attempt at recreating a salad I had last month when I was visiting Newport, spending the day shopping and eating. By myself. I have the biggest smile on my face just thinking about my me-day. 

While I love having others around, I completely relish days when it’s just me. I snuck away from a conference for a few hours to wander around Fashion Island, try out Native Foods and True Foods Kitchen and just enjoy some quality alone time.

While I enjoyed some really fabulous food that trip, this salad was one of my favorites. Roasted vegetables, creamy white beans and tart cranberries tossed in a slightly spicy horseradish dressing. A meal on it’s own or a perfect side dish… wherever you fall on the brussels sprout spectrum.
