Coconut Pecan Brussie Salad

Another all-star recipe from our friend Em at The Pig & Quill. Described as, "The crackiest salad, and for good reason. Buttery pecans. Chewy, sugar-flecked coconut. Crisp, salty fried onions, all lightly dressed with a sweet-tart balsamic vinaigrette? It’s a beautiful thing."

What you will need for the dressing:

What you will need for the salad:

  • 14 oz. brussel sprouts, shredded
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup dry roasted pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (or more!) canned fried onions

According to Em, "Whisk together dressing ingredients. In a large bowl, toss together brussies, carrot, coconut, and pecans. Combine with dressing. Top with fried onions and extra sesame seeds just before serving. Crack out."

Yum!
