From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, fall is here, and there’s no better way to celebrate it than with some of the season’s first Brussels sprouts. Tiny heads of densely wrapped leaves, Brussels sprouts are amazingly versatile. Here, we’re thinly slicing them, cooking them with a little lemon zest and mixing them into a farro salad that accompanies seared salmon fillets. In the salad, we’re also featuring apple, one of our favorite fall fruits. Juicy and sweet, it’s delicious coated in a tangy vinaigrette made with lemon juice and Dijon mustard.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the farro cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Using a peeler, remove the rind of the lemon, avoiding the pith; mince to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra); place in a bowl with the juice of 3 lemon wedges. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Core and small dice the apple.

While the farro continues to cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the Brussels sprouts and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a large bowl. Wipe out the pan.
