How did Joanna Gaines make her brussels sprouts salad?

Gaines has made cooking look easy and fun on her show Magnolia Table, which is now streaming season 4 on the discovery+ service. In one of the recent episodes, Gaines made a brussels sprouts salad that looked so delicious. The official Magnolia Network Instagram account shared a video of the star making the salad that fans couldn’t wait to try.

“A crisp and tangy salad so delicious you’ll forget it’s mostly Brussels sprouts,” the post read.

Viewers trying to replicate the recipe on their own could go to the official site for step-by-step instructions. The recipe calls for 2 pounds of brussels sprouts where you would have to shred the sprouts crosswise and stopping about half an inch from the base. Once that is done, you get a big serving bowl and put all the sprouts inside.

Two cups of blueberries are needed for the recipe as well as almonds. Furthermore, the recipe calls for 1 cup of sliced, toasted almonds. Next up, users will have to add a half cup of extra virgin olive oil, a quarter of a cup of rice vinegar, 2 teaspoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salad, and 1 teaspoon of pepper.

Lastly, when all of the ingredients are mixed together, it is now time to cover it up and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Once it chills, the salad is topped off with about 2 tablespoons of minced chives to garnish it.

Fans mix it up with their own takes to the brussels sprouts salad

One thing that is lovely about cooking shows is that viewers can experience at home the food the cooks make. Everyone has different preferences and after Gaines shared her brussels sprouts salad recipe, fans gave it their own twist sharing it in the comments section of Instagram.

“What really makes Brussels sprouts [taste] good is with applesauce and before just cook them in water with a stock cube (I think it’s called that way) but don’t overcook them because [that’s] how they get snotty and bitter,” a fan replied.

“Yummy. Also can do the same with dried cranberries with or in place of the blueberries,” a follower suggested.

“This looks so good! I wanna make it this weekend!!! Everyone, make sure your Brussels sprouts are super fresh or else they’re gonna smell like sulfur,” an Instagram user said.
