Brussels Sprout Bacon Salad Recipe - Rosenkål Bacon Salat Opskrift

 

Summer is coming and starting to think about great salads to make.  I really enjoy sitting outside on the deck or on a pinic table to enjoy summer dishes. This is a great side dish with chicken or steak for a barbeque, lunch or dinner.
Brussels sprouts and bacon is a great combination and in a salad it is just yummy. I really like the lemon dressing over the brussels sprouts too. Plus the salad has a nice variety of textures. So let's get started and make this delicious salad.

Ingredients 

  • 1 pound of Brussels sprouts, cleaned, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 a pound of crisp bacon, diced
  • 1 cup pecans (walnuts optional)
  • 1 lemon zest  
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • aprox 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Kitchen Utensils
  • medium pan
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • wooden spoon
  • slotted spoon

Instructions
  1. Select hard, bright-green sprout heads, as mushy sprouts yield less flavor. Choose sprout heads of roughly the same size so they'll cook evenly.
  2. Remove the outer leaves from the brussels sprout and rinse them well, then cut in half.
  3. Boil the brussels sprouts in lightly salted boiling water for 2 minutes.  Drain into a large mixing bowl. 
  4. Fry the bacon until crisp.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.  Dice the bacon.
  5. Transfer the diced bacon into the large bowl. Mix everything together.  Set aside bacon to garnish later.
  6. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice over the salad
  7. Then grate zest over the salad
  8. Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil over the salad. Mix well.
  9. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  10.  Mix in a tablespoon of honey and stir well.
  11. Just before serving, garnish with the pecans and reserved bacon
