  • 1 medium granny smith apple (sliced & cored; skin can stay on)
  • 1/2 fennel bulb (fronds reserved; slice to fit in food processor chute)
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts (washed and ends trimmed)


  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fennel fronds (chopped; go up to 1/3 cup if you love fennel)
  • salt and pepper


  • Slice the apple, fennel and Brussels sprouts as thinly as possible, using a food processor or mandoline.
  • Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a jar or salad dressing shaker and shake until completely combined.
  • Toss and serve immediately


  • Unfortunately, this salad does not keep well once dressed.
  • Brussels sprouts and fennel may be sliced up to 4 days ahead and stored in an air tight container in the fridge.
  • Vinaigrette may be shaken up 1-2 weeks ahead (leave out the fennel and add it just before serving).
