Brussels Sprouts Salad with Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette

  • 3 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, halved through stem end
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
  • 6 heads Belgian endive, cut into 1-1/2" pieces
  • 1 large head radicchio, cut into 1-1/2" pieces

Cook Brussels sprouts in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, about 8 minutes. Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Transfer to medium bowl. Combine lemon juice and mustard in small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Add thyme. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover Brussels sprouts and dressing separately and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before continuing.)

Combine endive and radicchio on platter or in large, shallow bowl. Toss with enough dressing to coat lightly. Mix Brussels sprouts with remaining dressing. Mound atop salad and serve.

Yield: 12 servings.
