Brussels Sprouts Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing
- 1-1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard (regular Dijon will work)
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
- Place the brussels sprouts in a steamer basket set over a large pot of boiling water. Cover and steam, until crisp-tender but still bright green, about 5 minutes.
- Place the brussels sprouts in a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking so they maintain their pretty green color. Drain and pat them dry with paper towels.
- In a small bowl whisk together the maple syrup, mustard, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper.
- Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice the brussels sprouts lengthwise.
- Place the slices in a large bowl and drizzle with the dressing and gently toss to coat them.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until chilled, or for up to 2 hours.
- Just before serving, sprinkle with the toasted pecans.
