Chunky, crunchy, and fresh, this apple and broccolini salad is loaded with healthy, flavor packed yumminess. It comes together in a jiffy, and makes a perfect packable addition to a lunchbox or picnic.
I’ve been on kind of an apple kick lately. In case you didn’t know, my hubby and I recently moved to beautiful Wenatchee, Washington. Not only is it a gorgeous town with a lovely hometown feel, but it happens to be the apple capital of the world. Not a bad title!
Just a couple miles down the road from us is the retail outlet for the world famous fruit growers – Stemilt. It’s a cute little shop, stocked full of some of the best apples you’ll ever try. This week I grabbed an armful of Pink Lady apples, and headed over to the Stemilt blog for inspiration. They call it the Stem Blog, and it’s a great place to find all kinds of recipes for apples, pears, and cherries.
Anyway, I was particularly drawn to a tasty little number combining apples, broccoli, and some other chunky goodies, and used it as a starting point for this delicious, Pacific-Northwest-apple-inspired salad. You can find the original recipe at Stemilt.com/recipes/fruit-recipes/apples/apple-broccoli-salad. If you stop by their blog, be sure to check out some of their other recipes – there’s lots of yumminess to be found!
