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.

    That salad looks so yummy. I don’t have a recipe,but I found a great salad at my grocery store. 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
