Broccoli Apple Salad

Here's a salad I put together quickly with what I had in the fridge.
You can use a bottled coleslaw dressing or your favourite homemade coleslaw dressing.

  • 2 cups raw broccoli chopped
  • 1 large apple cored and chopped (I leave the peel on for added colour and the nutrition)
  • 1/2 red pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 yellow pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 toasted pine nuts or almonds (not pictured)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup coleslaw dressing - bottled or homemade. (a poppyseed dressing might be a nice option)
  1. Combine all salad ingredients in serving bowl.
  2. Add dressing and toss.
  3. Refrigerate until serving.


  1. Oh what a delightful combination of broccoli and apples, and a creamy vinaigrette dressing! I shall save this recipe, I love broccoli salads :)

  2. Broccoli salads are always delicious and this one looks amazing!

  3. Made this today with a few minor changes to use up what I had on hand - dried cranberries instead of raisins, walnuts instead of pine nuts, 2 whole peppers instead of 2 halves, and poppy seed dressing. WOW it was good!
    I sent the kids a picture and have been asked to make it again when they next come over for dinner :D

  4. Have made it three times and I added grated smoked cheddar cheese to it - about 1/4 cup. Used cranberries as well instead of raisins and sunflower seeds instead of nuts. Rave reviews!
