  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 dash kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 head broccoli coarsely chopped
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 2 Tbsp sweet onion finely chopped


  • In large bowl, whisk together the sugar, vinegar, Dijon mustard, oil, salt and pepper.
  • Add the cranberries, broccoli, apple and onion to the bowl and toss well.
  • Cover and chill prior to serving.


Chef’s Note: If raw broccoli isn’t your thing (like Lesley), then steam the broccoli for about 5 minutes until crisp tender, cool and add to the salad.
Simplify It: Buy a bag of broccoli florets in the produce section of the grocery store to use in the recipe versus cutting up your own.
Nutrition Nugget: If broccoli just showed up as a new item in the grocery store today, it would be deemed the next big “superfood”! Just ½ cup of raw broccoli contains over 50% of your daily needs for Vitamin C, an antioxidant.

Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
