Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts


This Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts is an absolutely wonderful salad to make when you are looking for something fresh, healthy and full of vitamins. As you’ll know from reading some of my other recipes, I am a big fan of broccoli. This crisp green vegetable  is a fantastic source of Vitamin C and it also provides potassium and fiber. This salad is always one of my January go-to recipes to help me get over the excesses of the holiday season!

It’s so quick and easy to assemble too. You will barely even have to turn on the stove. Start by toasting some walnuts over medium-high heat. Assemble the salad ingredients in a large salad bowl. Make a lemon dressing from mayo, sour cream, lemon juice and some sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Combine the salad with the dressing and serve!

To make my version of Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts, you will need the following ingredients:

Easily one of my favorite salads in the world along with the panzanella one.

Not a big fan of walnuts but these weren't too bad to be honest.

Maleah Kujan

Cranberries make it very sour so don't add any if you don't like zesty things like myself, i'd recommend the grape salad instead much cheaper to make too.

Lizbeth Buzo

Delicious love having this before a large meal or during the day for lunch.
