This is a great side dish similar to coleslaw. Great with either pork chops or grilled chicken.  Perfect salad to serve at a brunch or at a barbeque out on the deck.

Dressing Instructions

To prepare the dressing, combine lemon juice, zest, dijon mustard, rice wine, honey in a medium bowl. While whisking continuously, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the mixture until all of the oil is incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  4. Break up the layers and place the sliced sprouts in a large bowl. 
  5. Add pomegranate seeds into the large bowl  
  6. Drizzle the dressing over the salad. Add as much dressing as desired, gently toss until combined
  7. Add the pine nuts to the Brussels sprouts salad
  8. Sprinkle the cheese and toss.
  9. Add individual clementine segments over the salad.  Arrange the clementines in a circular or decorative pattern                                                                                   
  10. Transfer to a individual serving plates or salad bowls.
