Salad recipes have the potential to bring us so much colour and variety to our table. Favorites are the Crispy Chicken BLT SaladSalmon Zucchini Salad, Watermelon Cucumber Salad. Festive salads are the Thanksgiving Salad and the Christmas Salad. This is the perfect salad to serve as a side to a delicious meat based dish.

Throw some Honey Soy Chicken Wings in the oven, combine all of the ingredients for this salad and you have a meal in one!

What pairs well with Brussel Sprouts?

Bacon pairs very well with brussel sprouts both in taste and texture.

Serve roasted brussel sprouts with lemon and garlic with our Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken, as a side dish with our Oven roasted brussel sprouts recipe or for a complete change make a Shredded Brussel Sprouts Quinoa Salad.

What is a Brussel Sprout Salad?

Remember the other day, when we talked about roasting brussel sprouts and how good they can taste fresh from the oven? The recipe is right here if you you are new to the blog and am wondering what on earth I am talking about! (Ha, ha!)

If we follow that same process, we can come up with this beautiful salad which you can have on the table at your next dinner party!

We take much the same steps on how to roast the brussel sprouts for this salad. So I won’t repeat all of that in case you do know what I am talking about and you are thinking ‘let’s get to the recipe already!!‘.

After the roasting, we take the dish from what was a vegan side dish to a salad jam packed with flavour. Through the addition of crispy bacon, edamame and a Basil Drizzle, this salad becomes next level, YUM!!

How to make a brussel sprout salad

We start with our beautiful big bowl of bright green Brussel Sprouts  (some spell as Brussels Sprouts, but remember the saying, you say potato, I say potato….which ever floats your board, I reckon!).

How do you cut roasted brussel sprouts?

Then we have a little bit of work to do by cutting the ends of (optional) and then in halves (not so optional). Use a sharp knife, work one at a time and repeat the process till all are done. 

Put some tunes on so you can rock out when you do that. If you would like to see more of the process, you can have a look at my stories on instagram. I made many little videos along the way to show you guys the ‘behind the scenes’ action!

How to make a Brussel Sprout Salad with Bacon

Now, that we have our veggies prepped and ready,  we roast them.  Like so. When that is all done, we crisp up some bacon in the oven, defrost some edamame, throw them all in a big bowl and add our basil drizzle.

Dressing for brussel sprouts salad

If you are familiar with my salad recipes then you would know how much I like to use greek yoghurt.  Combined with another ingredient or 2 to come up with a thick and creamy textured dressing with no added sugar!

You can read more about my dressings and sneak a peek at the how to in this recipe.

Ingredients

Roasted Brussel Sprout Salad

  • 600 g roasted brussel sprouts
  • 200 g streaky bacon
  • 200 g edamame

Basil Drizzle Dressing

  • 1 cup low fat greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and a wire rack into the tray 
  • Place the bacon on the wire rack and cook for 20 minutes until crispy. When cooled chop into small pieces 
  • Use a microwave safe jug and heat the edamame for 3 minutes 
  • Add roasted brussel sprouts, crispy bacon and edamame to a salad bowl. Use Basil Drizzle to dress salad and then 2 spoons to toss salad to combine. 

Notes

  • This recipe follows on from the Roasted Brussel Sprouts recipe. Rather than repeat all of the information, I have assumed from the recipe development side of things that you have roasted your brussel sprouts and are ready to make the salad. You can see how to do that in the Roasted Brussel Sprouts recipe (here)
  • This salad is best served hot! 
  • There are some chilli flakes in the roasted Brussel Sprouts method, if you are not a fan, you can leave them out. 
  • I find kitchen scissors the best way to cut up the bacon, but if you don't have them, a knife will work fine. 
  • This salad will reheat well. So if taking to work for lunches, you can whip up the salad over a weekend and you will be sorted for a few days at work. It keeps really well in the fridge.
