Tangy Broccoli Salad With A Twist

broccoli salad 1.1

Have you ever tried broccoli salad? I happen to adore it because it is easy to make, can usually be made a day ahead of time, and in this case it is a real crowd pleaser. As a matter of fact, I ended up making this two weeks in a row for Friday night dinner because it was just that good! In this version the vegetables and fruits are coated with a tangy maple mustard vinaigrette with a bit of fresh tarragon- my little twist on a classic.

  • 2-3 heads of broccoli with just the florets cut into small pieces. I used 2 bags of Trader Joes organic broccoli in my dish.
  • 1 large crunchy red apple diced.
  • 1 cup toasted and salted almonds chopped into smaller pieces.
  • 2 cups grapes sliced in half.


  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Juice of 4 limes
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp white wine or champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh tarragon


In a blender combine all of the ingredients of the dressing and blend until smooth. Pour over the salad ingredients and serve. Can be made a day ahead of time, but leave off the almonds until ready to serve.

It’s kale chopped up really tiny, slivered carrots, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds,fresh blueberries, and I’m sure I’m forgetting a few ingredients. It was all wrapped up in a yummy vinaigrette. My kids love it! That’s a plu
