Delicious Sprout Salad

Want to take a lighter approach to the New Year?  Or just craving a fresh, delicious meal? Try our sprout salad!  Though Brussels sprouts are not traditionally a hit all around, this recipe will almost certainly turn you into a fan – we even use our own house-made rye croutons.  Here’s how…

Salad Ingredients:

1 kg Brussels sprouts, trimmed

1 red onion, cut into thick slices

3 oz. dried currants, hydrated in warm water, drained and patted dry

¼ cup finely chopped fresh mint

House-made rye croutons (recipe below)

Kosher salt to taste

Croutons:

3 tbsp. unsalted butter

Rye bread, crusts removed, diced

Kosher salt

Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.  Add the bread cubes and sauté until golden brown and crispy on all sides, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and season with salt. Set aside.

Dressing:

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup rice vinegar

3 tbsp. lemon juice

2 fl. oz. sambal

Whisk all ingredients together and set aside.

Directions:

Using a mandolin or chef’s knife, cut the sprouts lengthwise into 1/8” thick slices. Set aside.

Arrange the onion slices on a heated grill.  Turn once until softened and nicely etched with grill marks. Transfer to a cutting board and cool slightly, then chop roughly and set aside.

Combine the sprouts, onion, currants and mint and a small handful of the croutons in a large bowl and toss to mix.  Add the dressing and toss again, then season with a bit of salt.  Serve, garnish with remaining croutons and enjoy!
