Brussels and Greens Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Pecans and Cranberries #fallsalad

I love salads any time of year, but during the colder months I like to make sure to include lots of comforting toppings. This Brussels and Greens Salad is filled with roasted sweet potato, nutty pecans, and sweet dried cranberries. All of the flavors blend together creating a salad fit for a holiday spread!

Brussels and Greens Fall Salad Tips:

  • This is a great dish to prep ahead when serving to a crowd. Cut and roast the potatoes, chop the pecans and shred the Brussels sprouts. Store everything separately until you are ready to serve, then mix well and toss with the dressing.
  • To shred the Brussels sprouts, simply cut them with a knife or toss in the food processor for a few pulses. Either way works just fine.
  • The recipe calls for spinach, but mixed greens work well in this salad too.
  • If you don’t have pecans, I think walnuts would taste fantastic in this salad.

Brussels and Greens Fall Salad Nutrition:

  • Brussels sprouts are extremely nutritious! They are a cruciferous vegetable filled with fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C, and antioxidants.
  • This salad is naturally gluten free, dairy free, grain free, and plant-based.
  • Dried cranberries are low FODMAP in a 1 tablespoon serving size.
  • Brussels sprouts are low FODMAP in a 38 g serving size.
  • Sweet potatoes are low FODMAP in a 75 g serving size.
  • If you are sensitive to some of these ingredients, please watch your portion size.
