Can I prepare this ahead of time?

Yes! I recommend making this a few hours before you plan to serve it if fixing it as a side dish. It soaks into the dressing and adds a lot of flavor!

Can I use shredded brussels sprouts in the bag?

You can to save time! I do prefer shredding them myself to remove the big pieces of brussels sprouts.

How long will this last for?

This will last good in the fridge for up to 2-3 days! I do recommend serving it fresh after the dressing soaks in for best taste and look.

How do I make candied pecans?

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together 2 tbsp maple syrup, ¼ tsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp coconut sugar in small bowl. Add to bowl with ½ cup pecan pieces and mix to completely coat. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven for 10 minutes. Be sure to flip the pecans half way through and once you remove from the oven, continually stir to prevent the pecans from sticking. Transfer to the freezer for 5-10 minutes to cool faster.

This Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad makes for a perfect side dish to add to your holiday table! It's light while also adding so much flavor too. The combination of the light dressing with the fresh pomegranate and apple is so delicious!


  • 3.5 cups shredded brussels sprouts
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/3 cup chopped candied pecans
  • 1 cup chopped honeycrisp apple
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • optional toppings: additional goat cheese and candied pecans


  1. Thinly shred brussels sprouts. I like to do this on my own instead of buying store bought ones.
  2. In a large bowl, add shredded brussels sprouts, candied pecans, pomegranate seeds, honeycrisp apple and goat cheese.
  3. In a small container mix together ingredients for dressing: olive oil, dijon, honey, apple cider vinegar, lemon, garlic powder and sea salt. Mix together.
  4. Pour dressing on salad and mix to combine.
  5. Serve with additional goat cheese and candied nuts on top.
  6. Enjoy!


If serving this, I would leave off the pomegranate seeds until last and let the dressing soak into the brussels and mixture for an hour + until you serve it. Then add the pomegranate seeds in. That way the color doesn't soak into the rest of the salad!

Talk soon, Taylor.
