sweet and savory broccoli salad

April 2, 2013

substitutions can be made for whatever you have in the house. i know what you’re thinking: “mayonnaise-based salads?” but i recently had a sweetened mayo broccoli salad that was actually delicious (too much time in the midwest, maybe?)

there’s always quick creamy raw broccoli salad if you want something without mayo.

perhaps this is a good transition away from heavy winter food, now that it’s already too hot to slow-bake ribs.

plus, it looks sweet and creamy without any added sugar.


3 large broccoli heads
5 diced radishes
2 diced tomatoes
1 diced apple
1/2 cup of red grapes, diced, drain (read: drink) the juice
5 green onions minus the white part, diced
1 cup medium carrot, shredded
1/2 cup dried cranberries

3 Tbsp your favorite salad oil
1 Tbsp mayo
1 Tbsp sour cream or unsweetened yogurt
salt and garlic powder to taste
3 Tbsp lemon juice


adapted from natasha’s kitchen


delicious! i replaced
