Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cider Vinaigrette

Roasted Brussels sprouts get tossed in an apple-cider vinaigrette for a sweet, sticky coating. Reducing the apple cider until it's slightly thickened helps to concentrate its flavor and sweetness, giving the dressing an intense punch.

  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered, if large (8 cups)

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion (1/2 medium)

  • 1 small apple, thinly sliced (2 cups)

  • ½ cup apple cider

  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

  • cup walnuts, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Toss Brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until tender and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Add onion and roast until the onion is tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add apple and roast until the apple is just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, bring apple cider to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in shallot, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.

  4. Add walnuts and the Brussels sprouts mixture to the large bowl with the dressing. Toss to coat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
