  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 7 ½ tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • Aged white cheddar or aged Gouda cheese (optional), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup pecan pieces


Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Wash and dice the sweet potatoes. In a bowl, combine the potatoes with 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper; mix to combine. Roast for about 25 to 30 minutes until tender.

Shred the Brussels sprouts: see the video below or go to How to Shred Brussels Sprouts.

Make the dressing: in a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Gradually whisk in 6 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a creamy emulsion forms.

To serve, place Brussels sprouts shavings on a plate, then top with sweet potatoes, slices of cheese, pecan pieces (toasted, if time), and dressing.
