This lovely fall salad is both refreshing and comforting. Finely sliced Brussels sprouts and fresh ginger are lightly seared in our Master Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then tossed with our heavenly ripe Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar and apple cider. A handful of sweet, toasted macadamia nuts give a contrasting crunch and rich flavor to this holiday-seasonal side dish.
Feel free to experiment with other autumn ingredients in this recipe. You may toss a few handfuls of dried cherries into the mix, or perhaps try using rosemary or parsley in place of the chives. Pecans, walnuts, and even hazelnuts would all be excellent sub-ins for the macadamia nuts to your taste.
