Tara’s Autumn Fest Salad (With roasted brussels sprouts, apples, and walnuts)

This salad encompasses all the flavors and textures of Autumn…hence the name!  The apples give a sweet and crispy contrast to the savory Brussels sprouts, the walnuts add a wonderful crunch, and the tanginess of the dijon dressing really brings the entire salad together.

This year, Brian and I are hosting Thanksgiving for his family at our apartment in Denver and we could not be more excited!

I feel like I have been scouring the internet for wonderful recipes and inspiration, testing out various side dishes, and preparing for the big day for months!

I absolutely LOVE eating with the season, so as soon as I started to see Brussels sprouts popping up in every store I made sure to get my hands on a bunch so that we could enjoy these wonderful baby cabbages.

This salad kind of happened by accident (as most great things do!).  I was simply throwing together ingredients to make a warm, fall-y salad to go with a Sunday night dinner and out came this Autumn Fest Salad.

We were so thrilled with how the salad turned out, we decided to add it to our Thanksgiving menu right then and there!!
