Broccoli Apple Salad

broccoliYield: 6 servings

This simple salad is best if you make it in advance and let it sit for a while, allowing the broccoli and apple to soak up the yummy goodness of the dressing. It’s quick, raw, crunchy, and super satisfying. If you like, you can add some raisins to the mix. Enjoy it as an alternative to a mixed green salad – it won’t disappoint!

    11/23/11: This is best served in the summer months. Cut the florettes small, per the recipe. Grapeseed oil adds a great flavor!
