Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad with Apricots and Toasted Almonds

Traditionally, Brussels sprouts are boiled and served as a side dish, which many people do not love. In this tasty salad, I roast them and pair them with sweet apricots and orange juice, which nicely balances the stronger flavour of the sprouts.

These tiny cabbages are high in fibre, which lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol to improve heart health. Brussels sprouts contain phytonutrients that can kill cancer cells.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Place quartered sprouts on baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil.  Roast for 15 minutes or just until tender and browned.
  2. To make the dressing:  combine oil, juice, mustard, rind, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Place Brussel sprouts in serving dish, add sauce and apricots and garnish with toasted almonds.

Health Tip: These tiny cabbages are high in fibre, which lowers the bad cholesterol which will improve your heart health. They contain phytonutrients that can kill cancer cells.
Children’s Tip: Kids usually don’t like boiled Brussel sprouts but try roasting them, then slice them thinly and you may win this battle.  If not try roasted broccoli and also slice thinly.
