BROCCOLI APPLE SALAD – source unknown
Broccoli, pecans, cranberries, carrots and apples come together to make an amazing salad with delicious flavors and textures. The creamy dressing on top makes this salad absolutely incredible!
4 cups fresh broccoli florets (about 2 medium heads)
½ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup diced red onion
2 large apples, finely chopped (I used gala apples)
½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped
½ cup dried cranberries
Creamy dressing ingredients:
½ cup lite mayonnaise
½ cup low fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
In a large dish combine broccoli, carrots, red onion, apples, pecans, and dried cranberries.
To make the dressing: Whisk together mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper.
Add the dressing to the salad and toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
