Cranberry, Cheddar, and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Sharing is caring!

One of our local surf shops has a killer cafe that sells the most delicious vegetarian salads. This is inspired by a few of the ones I’ve eaten there. With the cranberries and Brussels sprouts, and a sweet ginger and Dijon dressing, it would be a nice salad option during the holidays. Perfect for using up any leftover grains, roasted or raw veggies, any type of cheese, dried fruits, or nuts. Serve it in one big bowl at the table, or divvy it up into meal-prep containers for weekday lunches.


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup pine nuts


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

Mix Brussels sprouts, bacon, onion, olive oil, garlic powder, cayenne, and salt together in a large bowl. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

Roast in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 40 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven. Toss with pine nuts and serve.
