Broccoli Cashew Salad with Apples & Pears

November 15 2020

You have to eat your veggies, right?? We know we should, but at this time of the year, I'm thinking Parker rolls, sweet potato casserole, pecan pie, turkey, stuffing...not really thinking about salad.

But you will, once you get a look at this one!

Check it out: broccoli, onion, pears, apples, cranberries, cashews and a creamy dressing flavored with lemon juice and honey. Toss it and you're done! So simple, so delicious!

Broccoli Cashew Salad

with Apples & Pears

Makes: 8 servings

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


5 cups broccoli florets , chopped into small bites

1 apple , cored and diced

1 pear , cored and diced

1/4 cup red onion , diced

1 cup cashews , toasted or roasted

1 cup dried cranberries

Creamy Salad Dressing:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream, kefir or Greek yogurt

2 tbsps lemon juice

1/4 cup honey , softened or warmed up

1/4 tsp Kosher salt

In a large bowl, combine together chopped broccoli, diced apple, diced pear, diced red onion, cashews (toasted or roasted) and dried cranberries.

In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, sour cream (or kefir or Greek yogurt), lemon juice, honey, and salt. Note that honey should be soft and runny, warm it up if needed, so that it mixes easily. Whisk the ingredients until well combined and smooth. Add salt if needed.

Add the dressing to the broccoli salad and stir everything together.
