Brussels Sprouts Salad

If you’re looking for a different way to enjoy Brussels sprouts, look no further! I love the traditional way of roasting them, but I also love eating them in a salad. Brussels sprouts are from the cabbage family and have ample amount of nutrients good for the body such as Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and Folate.

I wanted to change up my Brussels sprouts game by adding some additional healthy ingredients. I really love salads, (a wide variety of them) and what I love more is fresh ingredients to make an absolutely delicious dressing from scratch bringing it all together! Lots of flavors like sweet, salty, and spicy come together for the recipe, and the dressing can be used for other salads as you see fit.

A little note about using raisins, cranberries, or sour cherries. Personally, I prefer dried sour cherries or cranberries for this recipe, but I was out so I used raisins which also work really well. I like the tartness the dried cranberries and sour cherries add. I suggest just using your favorite between the 3 options. You really can’t go wrong there. If you like Brussels sprouts, give this salad recipe a try! I would love to know what you thought of it, or even better, send me pictures or tag me on my Instagram page @cookingwithrips I can’t tell you how genuinely happy I get when I see you all making my recipes.

To store the salad, place it in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


Lots of love and light,

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
