Shaved Brussels Sprout and Fingerling Potato Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Fingerling Potato Salad

Dana Rady
The combination of flavors and textures in this dish is truly remarkable. The tangy and creamy goat cheese pairs perfectly with the crunch of the pecans and apples, while the roasted fingerling potatoes add a pleasant earthy flavor. The whole-grain mustard vinaigrette enhances the flavor of the Brussels sprouts, giving them a nice kick. This is a dish that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

  • Gather all ingredients and equipment needed.
