This is a great salad to make any time of the year, but especially during the winter season to get a boost of antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber! The salad dressing is so delicious – it will literally make the salad disappear off your plates, that’s how good is the flavor combination of all ingredients.

MY OTHER VIDEOS

Whenever I make a broccoli salad, I love combining mayo and sour cream together for a salad dressing and love that flavor combination! If you don’t like sour cream (or don’t have it), feel free to use kefir or Greek yogurt in place of sour cream for an equally good flavor! I also add lemon juice, honey, and salt. Make sure to soften the honey (by heating it up gently) before adding it to other salad dressing ingredients, to make sure it blends in smoothly.

  • 1 pear, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 cup cashews, toasted or roasted
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • Salad Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  1. In a large bowl, combine together chopped broccoli, diced apple, diced pear, diced red onion, cashews (toasted or roasted) and dried cranberries.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, sour cream (or kefir or Greek yogurt), lemon juice, honey, and salt. Note that honey should be soft and runny, warm it up if needed, so that it mixes easily. Whisk the ingredients until well combined and smooth. Add salt if needed.
