This is a great salad to make on any day. We love Brussels Sprouts in our house so this is always a crowd pleaser. It’s fresh and sweet, crunchy, creamy and salty, it hits all the right notes!
Seared Brussels Sprouts With Pine Nuts, Dried Cranberries And Goat Cheese
2 Tbs of grapeseed oil
2 to 3 cups Brussels Sprouts cut in half
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 clove garlic sliced
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup creamy goat cheese
salt & pepper
Heat a cast iron pan to medium high and add the oil. Place each sprout cut side down and get a good seer on it. Turn the heat to low, add a little salt & pepper and cover for about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Toss with pine nuts & cranberries. Assemble the Brussels on a plate and top with creamy goat cheese and the dressing below…
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest
2 Anchovies (do not omit…trust me!)
1 1/2 tsp celery salt
2 tsp pepper
3 Tbs minced shallots
3/4 cup olive oil
Add all the vinaigrette ingredients to a blender except the shallots. Blend them for about 30 seconds. Add the shallots and stir in with a fork. Drizzle on the salad lightly, right before serving. Delicious!

Very timely Heidi as I have a stash of sprouts to cook this afternoon. I love them too. Your method of searing them cut side down looks like a winner – I’ll give it a go!
Let me know how it goes.
Gorgeous recipe. So nice to read good things about Brussels sprouts too, which I like a lot as well.
I always surprises me how many people don’t like them…
