As the holiday season approaches, we’re all starting to think harder about what to put on the table for that final holiday spread, and healthy options can sometimes be hard to come by. At our families’ homes, there’s always the traditional turkey, stuffing, creamy mashed potato casseroles and steamed veggies. Can you guess which holiday sides are usually left untouched?

In looking to switch up our holiday traditions and inject a bit of green onto everyone’s plates this season, we’ve come up with a tasty way to enjoy eating those vegetables. This Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad with Pomegranate and Kale is sure to be a big hit at your next holiday party, and will be a delicious way to enjoy a new holiday tradition!

We love this recipe because it is super easy and quick to throw together, but it’s also a great way to re-introduce the family to a roasted vegetable that usually makes the rounds at the table anyway. As far back as I can remember, my mom has been serving Brussels sprouts at Christmas dinner. There are usually leftovers that go uneaten, but not because it can’t be a tasty vegetable. All you need is some seasoning!

This salad can be made ahead of time and served family-style in a giant platter, or people can serve themselves individual plates and choose their own salad toppings. Your younger cousins might be into pomegranate on their salad, but maybe some of your older relatives may find it difficult to go too far in challenging tradition!

Kale, pecans and goat cheese finish off this delectable salad and put a new spin on food filled with all the comforting flavours of winter and the holidays. You don’t even need dressing for this one – roasting the vegetables and adding the goat cheese will bring a savoury, complex flavour of its own, perfect for the holiday dinner table.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut Brussels sprouts in half, then toss with minced garlic, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook for 30 min.
  3. Meanwhile, toss kale with 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Within last 5 min of Brussels sprouts cooking time, place the kale in the oven and roast for 5 min.
  4. Remove both kale and Brussels sprouts from the oven, and toss in large bowl while still hot.
  5. Add pomegranate seeds and pecans, tossing to mix. Finish the salad by topping with goat cheese.
  6. Optional: serve kale and Brussels sprouts in large serving bowl, with pomegranate, goat cheese and pecans on the side so people can pick and choose what goes in their salad. The sprouts and kale are super tasty on their own, so some guests may opt for roasted vegetables over a salad.
  7. Enjoy right away while veggies are warm!

    This looks wonderful!! I’m a total roasted Brussels sprouts fanatic but never thought to put them in a salad! I do eat them cold because….well….I’m a total roasted Brussels sprouts fanatic! Love the idea of putting them in a salad and I just learned you can purchase frozen pomegranate seeds! Heaven!
