I love it when I can combine several of my favorite foods and flavors all in one place and have it result in something really delicious – which is exactly what happened here. I started off wanting to experiment with a cold sweet potato salad with a fall vibe, thinking along the lines of a vinaigrette with apple cider vinegar and maple syrup. Then I added Dijon mustard for some extra tang. Then maple syrup just goes with bacon, and bacon goes with everything, so that was thrown in. And then a friend of mine told me about a roasted sweet potato and Brussels sprout dish she made recently, so I shredded up some Brussels sprouts and put them in the mix. And viola, sweet potato and Brussels sprout salad was born, and I am immediately loving it. Eat a little as a side or a lot on top of some greens for a quick lunch or dinner.
