Raw and Caramelized Brussels Sprouts With Salty-Sweet Pepitas
This recipe was created through a partnership with Food52.
I’m not a huge fan of salads, so whenever I choose to eat or create a recipe for one, I am super-mindful of it ticking specific boxes: It has to have a mix of sweet and savory flavors, it has to feature a bright dressing that enhances all the other salad ingredients without overpowering them, and, last but not least, it must feature a number of crunchy elements.
This salad does it all.
It can be eaten entirely on its own for a lunch meal or can be paired with any of your favorite Thanksgiving or holiday dishes.
I love serving it alongside mashed potatoes, gravy, and a vegan turkey.
Although this recipe requires a few steps to come together, I encourage you to slow down and enjoy each one of them. Notice how beautifully caramelized your Brussel sprouts turn and taste your pumpkin seeds along the way as a little foreshadowing of the deliciousness that is waiting for you.
