Do you remember when we spent a really fun week in North Carolina with my sister and brother-in-law? And, when we ended up in South Carolina visiting Wesley and Daniel, our friends from Instagram? Well, we all went out for dinner the night before we headed back in Greenville, SC, at a bar called The 05. Everyone we talked to raved about their crispy brussel sprout salad. So naturally I ordered it because I LOVE brussel sprouts.
OH. MY. GOSH…. It did not disappoint. Deb and I wanted to come home and recreate it. We added a lot more goodies – aka toppings – on it and I think ours turned out a little better. ????
Here is how we made our crispy brussel sprout salad.
We didn’t measure any of the salad ingredients and you can obviously add as much as you want of each ingredient. So make it how you like.
Cut the brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes in small bite size pieces. We threw them in the air fryer to cook them, but you could use the oven as well.
While those are cooking, make the apple cider glaze.
Directions: Bring all of the above, EXCEPT the vanilla, to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and cook stirring constantly for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Add your salad greens to a bowl or plate.
Top with the apple cider glaze.
Add the brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, feta cheese and sunflower seeds.
And then… top with some buttermilk dressing. We actually made our own because we didn’t have any store bought on hand. I figured I would add that recipe below as well.
(Technically, we made ALMOND Milk Dressing – we had no buttermilk)
Combine everything, EXCEPT the balsamic vinegar and buttermilk, in a small bowl and mix well. Once that is done, stir in the balsamic vinegar and buttermilk.
Let me know if you try this crispy brussel sprout salad and what you think. I think it is absolutely delicious and will for sure have this again.
