Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad
Print Recipe

The perfect salad for your holiday table is this Shaved Brussel Sprouts salad with bacon, goat cheese, and apples. Plus, I toss it with a quick warm bacon vinaigrette right before serving. Guaranteed good!


1 pound (approx.) brussels sprouts, shaved
6 strips bacon, crispy
1 apple, chopped
4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup pecans, toasted

Bacon Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons bacon grease
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Dash of hot sauce
Pinch of sugar
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place bacon strips on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes until the bacon is very crispy. Let crispy bacon drain on a few paper towels and reserve bacon grease for vinaigrette.
  2. Wash brussels sprouts and slice them in half through the stem. Then shave thin with a sharp knife. Add shaved sprouts to a bowl.
  3. In a small skillet over low heat, toast pecans until fragrant and lightly browned. Be careful not to burn!
  4. Right before serving salad, heat bacon grease and other vinaigrette ingredients in a small skillet and swirl together. Don’t simmer the ingredients but heat them and stir until they are combined.
  5. When ready to serve, drizzle warm vinaigrette over shaved brussels sprouts and then toss with toasted pecans, goat cheese, chopped bacon, and apples. Serve immediately!
