This almost slaw-like salad adds freshness and crunch to the holiday table.


Brussels sprouts

2 pound(s), tough ends trimmed

Uncooked reduced fat center cut bacon

¼ pound(s), finely chopped

Apple cider vinegar

¼ cup(s)

Dijon mustard

3 tbsp(s)

Black pepper

1 tsp(s), freshly ground

Kosher salt

1 pinch(es), or to taste, optional


  1. Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. (If you’re using a knife, cut each sprout in half, then lay it, flat-side down, on a cutting board so it doesn’t wobble as you’re cutting it into thin slices.) Transfer the sprouts to a large bowl.
  2. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vinegar, mustard, and black pepper. Pour the bacon dressing over the sprouts and toss to combine. Season with the salt. Serve immediately.
  3. Serving size: 2/3 cup


Choose center cut bacon whenever possible so you get more meat and less fat, but still so much flavour.
