This warm roasted Brussels sprouts salad is a welcome winter health kick.

Sprouts are in season from September through to February. It’s not a time when you traditionally think of salads, but that is why this roasted vegetables and Brussels sprouts salad is a revelation. Firstly, it’s packed with amazing healthy vegetables that provide vitamins and minerals to boost your immune system to your mood. It’s also colourful and fresh, a great antidote to all those stodgy winter comfort foods, but still warm and filling.

Top tips for making Brussels sprouts salad

If you don’t have coconut oil (and you’re not vegan, of course) you can use melted butter to roast the veggies in.

The heat of the chilli and the tang of the lemon is all you need for this simple dressing, along with olive oil. If you’d prefer to use a readymade one, go for something simple like a balsamic vinaigrette.
