This refreshing sweet and savory apple-veggie salad is a tasty side dish year-round, and gives you options as to which vegetables you wish to add. Here's how I adapted a classic Broccoli Apple Salad to my liking.
1/4 cup Red Onion
1 large crisp Red Apple
1/2 cup fresh Pineapple Chunks
1/2 cup Craisins
4 stalks Celery, chopped
1/2 cup Walnuts (or Pecans), chopped
Other suggested options or additions: Broccoli, Carrots (sliced or slivered), Spinach,
Pickled Beets, Strawberries, Mandarin Oranges or Orange segments (chopped),
Garbanzo Beans, Jicama... experiment with whatever you have on hand
1/2 cup Mayonaise 1/2 cup
1/2 cup Yogurt, plain or honey flavored for extra sweetness
2 Tablespoons, fresh squeezed Lemon
1 Tablespoon Sugar, more or less
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 pinch Cayenne (or 1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper)
- Prepare, slice or chop first set of ingredients into a medium bowl.
- In a smaller bowl, mix the salad dressing ingredients together.
- Pour the salad dressing over the salad ingredients, mix and chill.
- Serve in small bowls or on a plate on a bed of lettuce or spinach.
