Broccoli and Apple Salad

I like this version because there's no mayo- just a light Dijon dressing that enhances the flavors. This is best when chilled overnight. Adjust sugar to taste, before dressing the salad. Cooking time includes chilling.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, whisk together sugar through salt. Add broccoli, toss well. Add apples and onion, toss again.
  2. Cover, chill at least 4 hours.

I liked this a lot. It is tasty and DH said who would have thought of putting apples with broccoli. Very light and tasty and I thought it did okay in the fridge for at least a couple days; after that the apples become a little too vinegar saturated though I ate it all. It begs to be messed with not for the sake of improvement but because it is adaptable. I had only purchased a couple of broccoli crowns so I added in some chopped celery and that was very good, too. Well worth repeating.

Yummm! I made the dressing with 1/2 the amount of sugar, and olive instead of canola oil. Sadly -- it didn't keep too well in the fridge, and the flavor went kind of "off" after a day or two. I should have gobbled it all up right away!

Very good, used Granny Smiths. The dressing was really tangy and good. I think next time I will put a few toasted walnuts on right before serving. Definitely a keeper.
