Broccoli Apple Salad
Broccoli salad is always tasty, but the addition of apples and a zingy vinegar like Sicilian Lemon take it to new heights. If your kids aren't wild about broccoli, cut back the amount by half and parboil it for 1 minute. The sweetness of the apples, carrots and balsamic vinegar will disguise the broccoli pretty well.
4 cups broccoli florets
2 large firm apples, such as Gala, chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/2 cup pepitos, walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Sicilian Lemon, Key Lime or Honey Ginger Balsamic Vinegar
Rinse the broccoli and drain well. In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, apples, carrots, onion, cranberries and all but 2 tablespoons of the pepitos.
In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, mayo and vinegar. Pour over the salad and toss. Chill 1/2 hour.
To serve, place in a serving bowl and sprinkle with the remaining pepitos.
