CRACKER BARREL COPYCAT RECIPE – BRUSSEL SPROUTS N KALE SALAD – SHREDDED BRUSSEL SPROUTS AND KALE, CRAISINS, AND PECANS, DRESSED IN A MAPLE VINAIGRETTEHave you tried this new side at Cracker Barrel? It’s a delicious healthy salad of shredded brussel sprouts and kale, craisins, and crunchy pecans, all dressed in a maple vinaigrette. And it’s so easy to make at home! I put this recipe together and it tastes just like the real deal 🙂
You’ll just need 4 basic ingredients for the salad: brussel sprouts, kale, craisins, and pecans.
Shred or chop the brussel sprouts and kale as thinly as possible. You want them to be like shaved strands. You should have fairly equal amounts of kale and brussel sprouts.
Toast the pecans in a skillet over high heat for 60-90 seconds. Add the pecans and the craisins to the bowl.
Next mix up the maple vinaigrette and pour it over the salad.
Toss salad until coated in vinaigrette and let sit in fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
That’s it! Such an easy and tasty fresh healthy side. 🙂
