Cranberry, Broccoli And Walnut Salad

Cranberry, Broccoli And Walnut Salad

Are you looking for a fresh and appealing side dish for the holiday season? Throwing together a pretty salad using seasonal veggies, nuts and berries might be just the thing!

A good friend of mine made this salad for me when I was a new mother, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s also very easy to adapt using your preferred ingredients. Add more veggies, or substitute dried cherries for a little more sweetness. Use sunflower seeds instead of toasted walnuts for shorter prep time.

You start by cutting up fresh broccoli. Place in a large bowl along with a cup of dried cranberries, a cup of toasted walnuts and bacon pieces.

Mix up the simple dressing; there are just 3 ingredients (1 cup of mayo, 2 T sugar and 2 T of apple cider vinegar).

Toss everything together and chill before serving. It’s even better the next day, so make ahead to save some time.
