The bitterness of broccoli is delicious next to the sweet
tartness of apples. Plenty of crunch, too!


1 large crown and stem of Broccoli
2 Apples

1 Lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Alternate Dressing
1 tablespoon Yogurt
1 teaspoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh Dill, chopped
Salt and pepper


Slice the stem of the broccoli into 1/8” discs. If you can’t get them that thin, don’t
worry, but the thinner the better if you have the patience! Once you reach the
crown of the broccoli, cut each of the florets off and slice each of them as thinly
as you can as well. Set the broccoli in a bowl.

Halve and core the apples, then place the apples flat side down on your cutting
board to make them easier to slice. Slice the apples into 1/8” pieces as well, then
dump them into the same bowl.

Choose either of the dressing options and prepare it by simply mixing the
ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste it and season with more salt and
pepper to match your preferences.

Pour the dressing over the bowl of vegetables and mix it all together.

If you put a plate in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving the salad, it’ll stay
crisp slightly longer. For the best presentation, pile the salad as high and tight as
you can manage.
