1smallbroccoli crown, chopped and cooked (about 1 cup)
1smallapple, chopped with skin on (about ½ cup) (I like Gala)
1cuplettuce leaves (optional)
1largepitted date, chopped
½smalllemon, zest and juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
Mix together the broccoli and apple in a small bowl.
Cover a small plate with the lettuce, if using, and top with the broccoli mixture.
Top with walnuts and sprinkle the cashews and date over the top.
Mix together the lemon zest, juice, olive oil, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over the salad and serve.
Next time I'm going to try that outerspace-like looking veggie that combines cauliflower and broccoli—the broccoflower. I've had it steamed, roasted and grilled, however have yet to put it in a salad. Should be tasty with the nuts and fruit.Try substituting dried figs or apricots for the dates. Any sweet and chewy dried fruit will give you the texture and sweet/savory experience.If you have almonds, hazelnuts or other favorite nuts, feel free to substitute for the cashews. Walnuts, like the broccoli and apples, signify Fall so I also include them in this salad. In fact, if you have any of the nut oils, they would be a great sub for the olive oil here. All slightly sweet and tart apples are fine. Try Honeycrisp, Grannies or even really tart Pippins if you like them. Galas are really easy to find in most supermarkets, so as an all around tart-sweet fruit, I can always find them when needed.3*SmartPoints (Green plan)3*SmartPoints (Blue plan)3*SmartPoints (Purple plan)4*PointsPlus (Old plan)
