Recipe Instructions

Step 1: Have all ingredients prepped and ready to go before beginning.
Step 2:  Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add bacon pieces. Cook until crisp, stirring to evenly brown, then remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels, save the bacon fat.
Step 3: Place shredded Brussels sprouts in a large bowl and toss with bacon and 1 tbsp rendered bacon fat.
Step 4: Meanwhile, heat the same skillet over medium heat and add the nuts, sprinkle with sea salt. Cook 3-5 minutes, stirring, until toasty, careful not to burn.
Step 5: Toss the nuts with the Sprouts and bacon, then add the chopped apples. Sprinkle with lemon juice, then add the cranberries and toss.
Step 6: To make the dressing, place all ingredients except for salt and pepper in a tall jar or container and use an immersion blender to combine. Taste, then add salt and pepper.
Step 7: Toss about half the dressing with the salad, leaving the rest to serve with as extra. Serve and enjoy!*
