Broccoli + Crisp Apple Salad
1 large head of broccoli, chopped into bite size florets
2 fresh crisp apples, cored and chopped bite size
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts, or pecans
1 cup carrots, roughly chopped
1/4 cup dried goji, or cranberries
1 small red onion, chopped
5 Tbsps apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsps raw honey
3 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsps dijon mustard
2 Tbsps chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 tsp red pepper flakes
sea salt & pepper to taste (about a 1/2 tsp each)
In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients. Chill until ready to use.
Bring a medium pot of water to a rapid boil. Add in a tsp of salt and the broccoli florets.
Cook until crisp tender, 1-2 minutes, then drain and rinse in ice water to immediately stop the cooking process.
In a large salad bowl toss together broccoli, apples, walnuts, carrots, goji and red onion.
Pour in dressing and gently toss until evenly coated.
