Blueberry Brussel Sprouts with Blueberry Vinaigrette

Blueberry Brussel Sprouts with Blueberry Vinaigrette

This is the perfect salad for spring and summer! Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables and I especially love them in salads. That’s right, you can finely chop or shave Brussel sprouts to make salad greens. They make the best base for salads, and they hold well too. The shaved Brussels sprouts are crisp, crunchy, and go great with so many salad fixings.

I love making Brussel Sprouts during the fall months but wanted a Brussels sprout salad with spring and summer ingredients. This Blueberry Brussel Sprouts Salad screams spring and summer! It is my new favorite salad; I have been making it nonstop!

I like to finish this salad with a homemade Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing. It is simple and so refreshing.  This homemade Blueberry Vinaigrette is not your average salad dressing! Made with blueberry preserves, honey, and a few other simple pantry ingredients, this dressing is full of bright, sweet flavors. Whether you drizzle it over a fresh green salad or use it as a flavorful marinade, it’s destined to become a favorite.
