Delicious Broccoli Apple Salad Will Keep In Your Fridge
August 10, 2015 10 Comments
Lettuce tends to melt in my fridge and when I make a salad with it - I eat it right away.
It can be difficult to keep a raw vegetable type of mixture ready to go for grabbing instead of – hmm, let’s say the cheesecake that my friend, Kate, brought over.
But, you can use heartier fruits and vegetables and make LARGE salads that you can munch on with a little bit of planning. This salad uses broccoli, carrots, and apples and it is so yummy that my husband ate it instead of the cheesecake.
I’m not kidding.
For the dressing, I am going to give a little shout-out to Chobani. I used the Chobani non-fat plain 5.3 ounce yogurt for this recipe and it was the perfect flavor and consistency. It is a great choice for a low-fat, low-sugar, high protein yogurt. I mixed it with some mayonnaise and it was very creamy.
