Calling all roasted brussel sprout fans! If you love a good flavorful roasted Brussel, you’re going to love this Roasted Brussel Sprout Salad with Quinoa. It is the ULTIMATE holiday healthy holiday side dish if you ask me.

I first made this brussel sprout salad recipe back in 2013 and since then I’ve tweaked, added, and perfected the flavors.

How to Make Roasted Brussel Sprout Salad with Quinoa

Step 1: Roast Veggies

Step 1 is rather simple. Drizzle your brussel sprouts, chickpeas, and onion with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Give her a nice toss and pop the entire pan into the oven at 400ºF for 303-35 minutes.

Step 2: Make Quinoa

While your veggies are roasting, steam your quinoa! There are many ways to do this like in the Instant Pot, microwave, or stove top! If you’re cooking your quinoa on the stove-top, combine 1/2 cup of dry quinoa and 1 cup of water (always 1:2) and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer until all water has absorbed.

Step 3: Make Dressing

Once you’ve got your quinoa on, it’s time to make your yummy dressing! This dressing is a combination of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, and maple syrup! It not only tastes amazing on this brussel sprout salad, but on any kind of salad!
