Broccoli Apple Salad

Broccoli is a popular vegetable for its versatility in main or side dishes and because it provides great health benefits for detoxifying the body. Try this version of broccoli salad with a healthy twist –a yogurt dressing!



Prep Time:

10 minutes


  • 1-2 large crowns of broccoli
  • 2 apples (any variety of your choice)

For dressing

  • 1 tablespoon non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional toppings:

  • Raisins, sunflower seeds, walnuts or cheese


  • Separate the broccoli into its florets and then thinly slice. Place in a bowl.

  • Halve and core the apples. Slice apple into thin pieces and then mix with broccoli.

  • To prepare dressing, mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your preference.

  • Pour dressing over the broccoli and apple mixture, and toss well to coat vegetables.

  • Tip: If you put salad in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving, it will stay crisp slightly longer.
