Kale Brussels Sprout Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing

5 from 1 reviews

A simple, wholesome, flavorful fall salad! The Maple Dijon Dressing is tangy, slightly sweet, and the perfect accompaniment to any and all fall veggies.




  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt + pepper


  • ~4 handfuls kale leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded raw brussels sprouts
  • 1 fuji apple, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Mix up your dressing ingredients in a small jar or bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add your kale and brussels sprouts to a large bowl. Pour on 3/4 of your dressing, and massage the dressing into the greens for a few minutes. The kale should turn bright green and start to soften.
  3. Add your apple, dried cranberries, and walnuts, and toss to combine. Serve immediately with the leftover dressing on top (or store in the fridge — I loved it as leftovers!).


Want to bulk up your salad? Add avocado, crispy tofu, beans, roasted squash, roasted fennel, and/or pumpkin seeds!
