Broccoli C-R-U-N-C-H Salad

January 13th, 2016 No Comments Tags: , ,

I was invited to a pot luck lunch with a bunch of dynamo nutrition folks last week. One of the hostesses – Shauna Lindzon shared some nutritional nuggets about broccoli. “Broccoli gets top marks for its health benefits and disease fighting (esp for cancer) properties.” We were spellbound in discussion. So inspired by her factoids I added it to my grocery list and whipped up this crunchy creation and wanted to share it with you!

Ingredients
1/2 cup 1% sour cream
1/4 cup 2% plain Greek style yoghurt
1 T vinegar
1/2 finely chopped Spanish onion
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 bunch broccoli finely chopped
1 Granny Smith apple finely chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
2 T toasted pumpkin seeds

Instructions
1) Combine the sour cream and yoghurt and put aside
2) Add all of your chopped ingredients to a mixing bowl, then add the vinegar, seasoning and combine well.
3) Stir in the combined sour cream and yoghurt and mix well.
4) Cover, refrigerate and enjoy!

Commentary
Ummm YUM! I love a dish that tantalizes your tastebuds with flavour, crunch, savoury and creamy, biting you back while filling you UP. Whoever thinks that uber nutritious can’t be ultimately delicious is dead wrong. It’s easy to create half your plate with veggie & fruit! This dish fills you up and never lets you down!
