Ingredients

  • 3 apples of your choice diced right before adding them to the salad Gala apples work great
  • 4 cups broccoli cut and shredded around 2 medium heads
  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

For the Dressing:

  • 1 lime squeezed
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (optional) for those who like their food sweet.

Instructions

  • Wash broccoli before cutting. Cut the florets from the stalks. Then cut into very small pieces. Place into a large bowl.
  • Take the stems of the broccoli stalk and cut off the hard outer skin. Discard. Take the tender inside stem and cut it into matchsticks (long strips). If you have a food processor that will cut into long strips, use it.  
  • Add to a large bowl, the florets, stems, diced apples, shredded carrots, diced red onions, and dried cranberries. 

Dressing Instructions:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.
  • Add the dressing to the salad. Toss. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Best after chilled and dressing and salad settles.
