Carolyn's Broccoli, Red Pepper and Apple Salad
Monday, January 30, 2023 @ 6:29 AM

By Carolyn Emmett

I make this recipe at least twice a month because it goes with so many things. It keeps well in the fridge, especially if I use Pink Lady apples, which are very crisp and retain their colour.




  • 2 Tbsps. Oil
  • 3 Tbsps. fruit vinegar (apple is best)
  • 1½ tsps. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsps. honey or maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper


  • Blend together the dressing ingredients.
  • Finely chop 1 head of broccoli (no stalk), 1 red pepper and 1 apple (with peel).
  • Add to dressing and mix well.
  • Lightly toast 40g of pine nuts and sprinkle on top (optional).
