This Pear Bacon and Brussels Sprout Salad is a perfectly delicious Autumn salad that will leave everyone asking for more! It’s the perfect combination of flavors and textures.
You get those thinly shredded brussels sprouts that have just the perfect crunch, along with soft sweet pears, salty crispy bacon, a slight bite from the shallots, nutty crunchy pecans, creamy tangy gorgonzola cheese, plus just a hint of herby freshness from the parsley.
And it’s all finished off with a bright lemon bacon maple dressing.
It’s a salad that will give you one more reason to look forward to fall every year and all those delicious pears in season (which you can swap out the type of pear but if they have a thicker peel then peel them first).
This salad is the perfect reminder that everything is better with bacon. But really, I do love the way the pears and bacon compliment each other here.
It’s a match meant to be and a flavor combination I should be using more often.
