Warm Brussel Sprout Salad with Bacon and Gorgonzola

You know I love a warm and hearty salad, and this one is amazingly delicious and satisfying. Roasted brussel sprouts are infused with the flavors of shallots and garlic, tossed in a light vinaigrette and topped with bacon and gorgonzola. This salad is fodder for sexy salad dreams, I tell you. If you try it, you’ll understand. 

Ingredients:

2 c. brussels sprouts, halved

1 shallot, sliced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 Tbsp. olive oil 

Salt and pepper

2 slices of bacon, diced

½ c. gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

Dressing:

2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar

2 tsp. Dijon mustard 

⅓ c. olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

Toss together the brussels sprouts, shallots, garlic and olive oil and spread out on a lined baking sheet. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the veggies are tender and slightly browned. 

Prepare the dressing by whisking together all ingredients and set aside. 

To assemble the salad, place the still-warm brussels sprouts in a large bowl and toss with dressing. Top with bacon and gorgonzola. Serve immediately!
