About this recipe
Don’t you just love Brussels sprouts? I’m madly in love with them; I like them raw, steamed, and roasted… but this is probably my favorite recipe. I just love how the sweet and spicy vinaigrette pairs perfectly well with the slight bitterness of the Brussels sprouts.
Oven roast or pan-roast Brussels sprouts
Over the stove: You can roast the Brussels sprouts over the stove on a cast iron pan. With this method, you can control the roasting. I like them almost burnt! When you try them, you’ll see a delicious, almost sweet flavor as they roast.
Oven: Place the Brussels sprouts on a large baking pan. or baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the top and toss to coat well. Bake in the 400ºF preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender and lightly browned.
Air fryer: Preheat the air fryer (affiliate link) to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to an air fryer (affiliate link) basket and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring once or twice, until sprouts are crispy and browned.

Tips for making the best salad
- It is best to use a platter, not a bowl, to serve this salad. If you want to use a bowl, wait until the Brussels sprouts are almost room temperature.
- Use almonds (affiliate link) or cashews (affiliate link) if you can’t find pinenuts.
- This recipe can easily be transformed into a complete lunch or dinner if you mix it with quinoa or rice. You could add some lentils to it, which will still be amazing!
