This delicious combination of roasted Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and grains topped with a creamy apple vinaigrette is the perfect Thanksgiving Salad. Served as a side dish or an appetizer, you will love this easy salad recipe all fall and winter long!
This Thanksgiving Salad is so simple and so good that I actually dream about it! I first had a version of this salad at a local restaurant and immediately knew that I had to recreate it at home because it would be so good for the holidays! If you think you donât like Brussels sprouts then I insist that you try them roasted before you rule them out! Once roasted, they get so crispy and full of flavor and when added to the sweet potatoes, you have an amazing combination of flavors!

The addition of the grains adds an interesting textural element! I used a bag of mixed grains from the grocery store, one of those microwaveable bags, but you could use whatever type of grain you like! Rice, quinoa, or couscous would all be great! You can even leave out the grains if you wanted this salad recipe to be strictly vegetables.
I love the versatility of this salad. You can serve it before a meal as an appetizer or you could serve it alongside turkey, chicken, or ham. It definitely works as a side dish! You can even add grilled chicken to the top and serve it as a main course! Easy entertaining recipes that are versatile are my favorite type of recipe, and this one definitely fits the bill.
I canât forget to mention the amazing dressing! This salad is topped with an apple thyme vinaigrette! The tangy flavors of the apple cider balance out the veggies so well! It adds the perfect flavor punch to an already delicious combination!
