This fabulous Charred Sprout Salad recipe from food writer John Gregory-Smith heroes the Christmas favourite, Brussels sprouts. Often overlooked as a festive side, for this recipe John brings them centre stage for the glory they deserve. Roasting sprouts brings out their bittersweet flavour and brings a crispy texture that is the perfect contrast to this creamy yoghurt base. Looking for more salad recipes? Look no further.

  • 500g sprouts, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g kale
  • 2 handfuls mint leaves, plus extra to serve
  • 3 handfuls coriander, leaves only
  • 3 handfuls flat-leaf parsley, leaves only
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 100ml tahini
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 250g Greek-style yoghurt
  • 50g pomegranate seeds
  • 20g pecans, roughly chopped


Step 1

Heat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C fan/ gas 7. Spread the sprouts over a baking tray, drizzle with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper then toss to coat. Roast for 25-30 mins, or until charred and tender.

Step 2

Meanwhile, blanch the kale for 1 min in boiling water then drain and tip into ice-cold water. Drain again and, using your hands, squeeze out as much water as possible.

Step 3

Put the mint, coriander, parsley, garlic, tahini, 80ml water, lemon and a pinch of salt into a mini blender and blitz into a lovely thick green dressing. Check the seasoning and add salt to taste.

Step 4

Swirl the yoghurt over the base of a serving plate. Top with the hot sprouts and blanched kale. Drizzle over some of the green tahini dressing and then garnish with the pomegranate seeds, pecans and mint leaves. Serve immediately with the remaining dressing at the table for drizzling.
