ABC Salad

Apples, broccoli and dried cranberries combine in this fresh-tasting salad. I came up with the recipe after tasting something similar at a restaurant buffet.

    Very good, and simple to make. I used just 1/4 cup oil in the dressing, which was enough. I plan to make it again for our Christmas buffet.

    Simple and delicious. Just make sure to cut broccoli heads small.

    I made this delicious and visually appealing salad for a big family gathering last holiday season. It's been requested for Thanksgiving dinner this year! It's a hit, and oh-so-simple!

    I recently made this for a picnic with friends. We all agreed it was a keeper. Light and fresh. Easy to make. Traveled well in cooler. I used pecans instead of walnuts since that is what I had on hand.

    This is the third time I'm making this salad. Since I found it, I make it once every year. It's a nice change from the other broccoli salads out there!

    This is a well loved recipe among my family and friends! I sometimes use apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice in the dressing and adjust the sugar to taste. It adds a little extra zip. It also works well with Splemda.
