Directions.

To make the dressing;

Place all your dressing ingredients into a small jar and shake very well to emulsify, or place everything in a small bowl and whisk very well. Set aside until ready to use.

To make the candied nuts;

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees / 170 C, line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Add in the pecans or nut of your choice and drizzle with maple syrup, too well for an even coat, then arrange to a single layer and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, remove from the oven. Allow them to sit on their tray for a while as they will crisp up once cooled.

To assemble your salad;

Set up your food processor with a slicing blade, add in the sprouts and pulse to thinly slice them (alternatively, you can use a sharp knife if you have no processor). Though, the processing method is less time-consuming.

Place your sliced brussels sprouts into a large bowl then drizzle in the prepared dressing. Using your clean hands, gently massage the Brussels and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator before assembling the salad.
