Broccoli Apple Salad, a refreshing cold side dish, contains fresh broccoli, raisins, and red onions drizzled with a creamy Homemade Salad Dressing.
WHAT IS BROCCOLI?
According to Wikipedia.org, broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family (Brassicaceae, genus Brassica).
Broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo, which means “the flowering crest of a cabbage”, and is the short form of brocco, meaning small nail or sprout.
Broccoli’s large flowering head, stalk and small associated leaves are edible vegetables.
USE FRESH BROCCOLI IS BEST IN THIS SALAD
Fresh broccoli florets are suggested for this recipe.
I don’t suggest frozen broccoli for this salad because turns mushy too quickly.
Broccoli Apple Salad can be made several hours ahead or up to two days before serving.
HOW TO STORE BROCCOLI APPLE SALAD
Store this salad with the dressing in a container with an airtight lid.
After refrigeration, the fresh broccoli will remain fresh, the flavors will meld together and taste much better.
Please note that fresh broccoli will soften after three days in the refrigerator.
