Broccoli Apple Salad


There are only a few ways you can get me to eat raw broccoli and actually enjoy it. It either needs to be mixed into a salad like so or dunked into a really good dip. This delicious Broccoli Apple Salad is one of the best ways you can enjoy fresh broccoli! Plus it’s packed with nutritious ingredients! I also made it lighter (as I frequently like to with dressings) by substituting plain Greek yogurt for some of the mayonnaise.

Don’t get me wrong, I love mayo. My go to brand of mayonnaise is Hellman’s (AKA Best Foods in some states). I always have a full-fat version of it and a light version stocked in my fridge. I use it for countless things, from sandwiches, to dressings, to salmon, to chicken salads and so forth. It’s a pantry (or in this case refrigerator) staple. I love the rich creaminess the full-fat version offers to this salad. By using the ratio of 1/3 cup regular mayo to 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, you can still keep a healthy balance without compromising great flavor.

Hellman’s mayonnaise can be found in bulk at Sam’s Club. My husband and I made a trip to Sam’s Club today and I was so excited to try the Scan and Go App. Why have I not heard of this sooner?? You simply download the app (create an account, register your membership card and upload a payment method if you haven’t already) then as you are doing your shopping you simply scan an item you want to buy using the app and camera on your smart phone. Add it to your cart and continue to do this with all the items you want to purchase. Then make your payment using the app. And here’s the best part – skip the check out lines! Simply proceed to the exit where a costumer service member will be waiting to scan the barcode on your app (which shows all of your purchases) and off you go! I love it!

Sam’s Club also offers Club Pick Up where you can shop from home (order the items you want online) then someone at Sam’s Club will do all the shopping for you and you just show up to pick up your items hassle free. Genius! It leaves you with more time to do the things you love! Try for yourself and see how convenient it is. And while your there grab the things you need to make these delicious Broccoli Apple Salad!

    • Jaclyn: Yes, you should! Thanks Char!! March 1, 2017 at 10:57am Reply

  • Kerri: Looks soooo delish! Will it keep for a couple of days without the apple turning brown? I’d love to make a batch of this on a Sunday and take for beginning of the week lunches. :) March 1, 2017 at 1:29pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: The apples will probably start to brown but you can just add them later on. What I’d do is prep the other ingredients, and keep the dressing separate, then add the apples when you are ready to eat it. One thing that can slow the browning is lemon water or salt water.

  • Urana Q. Cruz: Finally made it. It was delish and my spouse agrees. I used the golden raisin and as I expected, it reminded me of the coleslaw I ate once that I can’t seem to forget ever loving. THANKS FOR SHARING👍 March 4, 2017 at 2:30am Reply

  • Tiffany: I do not like mayo but this recipe looks great. What can I substitute for the mayo or can I add more Greek yogurt and leave out the mayo altogether? March 4, 2017 at 7:32am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes it won’t be quite as rich and creamy but you could just sub more Greek yogurt. I might recommend adding in a little olive oil and using full fat Greek yogurt. March 26, 2017 at 10:40pm Reply
