  1. In a large bowl, combine brussels sprouts, kale leaves, onion, bacon and apples.

  3. Pour the maple dressing over the brussels sprouts mixture. Stir well to combine.
  4. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. Stir again before serving to re-distribute the dressing.


  • If I’m short on time, I wrap the bacon in paper towels and place it on a plate. I then microwave it for 4-6 minutes until crispy. Be careful when removing from the paper towel, it will be hot!
