  • 4 dozen brussel sprouts
  • 1 cup sliced almonds toasted
  • 6 slices bacon cooked, chopped
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated

For the Dressing

  • 1 tbsp shallot finely minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard grainy type
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider
  • 3/4 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Using a sharp chef's knife, cut thin ribbons of brussels sprouts (essentially shaving them) or with a mandoline and a cut-resistant glove, shave the brussels sprouts.
  • Combine the brussels sprouts, almonds, bacon, and parmesan in a large serving bowl.
  • In a mason jar or small mixing bowl, combine the shallot, dijon mustards, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, apple cider, salt, and pepper. If using a mason jar, add the olive oil, place lid on and shake until creamy. If using a bowl, while whisking vigorously, slowly pour in the olive oil. Beat until creamy.
  • Pour over salad, toss, and serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
