Broccoli Salad

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ pounds fresh broccoli (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 large apple (chopped into bite-size pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the homemade dressing:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use full fat, low fat will also work)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Place broccoli, blueberries, red onion, cranberries, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. In a small bowl, toss apple with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Add to the big bowl with the salad.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine. Salad may be served immediately or refrigerated until serving. It will last for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

NOTES

  • You can substitute 1 cup mayonnaise for the Greek yogurt. Reduce the honey to 3 tablespoons.
  • You can substitute apple cider vinegar for the lemon juice in the dressing.
  • You can leave the poppy seeds out of the dressing and no substitutions are needed.
