Winter Salad with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Apples, serves 8


  • 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoons Taste Elevated Tangy Mustard Seeds
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar, honey or maple syrup
  • Pinch of red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons candied rosemary orange zest
  • 1 Tbs. sherry vinegar or Champagne Vinegar
  • 5 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 1 1/2 red apples, such as Fuji or Gala, cored and thinly sliced


To make the salad, in a large bowl whisk both mustards, vinegar, brown sugar, pepper, the candied rosemary orange zest, vinegar, 5 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt and pepper.

In a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil. Add the brussels sprouts, salt and pepper.
