Tangy Broccoli and Apple Salad
With BBQ season fast approaching we all need lightened up salads in our repertoires. I was inspired once again during my Saturday morning routine where my daughter woke up the rooster who woke up this mom and I laid in bed with Paw Patrol, a toddler snuggled up with me and Facebook (admittedly I only had one eye open at this point but you get the picture). It’s really easy to get caught up in the word “salad”; mayonnaise, cheese, bacon, nuts… See where I’m going with this??? Step away from the calories and try this insanely tangy, crunchy salad… That’s right…. SALAD, like for real 😉
½ Cup low fat mayonnaise
½ Cup fat free sour cream
1 tbsp white (distilled) vinegar
1 tsp white sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 Large carrot, grated
½ Small onion, grated
1 Large stalk celery, diced
1 Medium Royal Gala apple, skin-on, chopped
1 Bunch broccoli, florets only
1-2 Pinches sunflower seeds (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, carrot and onion.
Fold in the celery, apple and broccoli florets; mix well.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, up to 24.
Taste and adjust seasoning before serving and then top with the sunflower seeds if using.
