Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
