Broccoli Apple Slaw


I have made this salad twice for two different parties, and it was a big hit.  This healthy salad combines shredded broccoli and carrots, apples, walnuts, and green onions in one bowl for a slightly sweet, tangy salad.  Topped with a combination of Greek Yogurt, and a little Miracle Whip and splash of Vinegar, this salad delivers big taste with fewer calories. Besides, you are getting all of the antioxidants from the broccoli, apples, and walnuts, as well as the vitamins and minerals from the carrots.  Throw in a few dried cranberries, and you have a gorgeous party in a bowl, with all of the different textures, colors. and flavors.


This salad comes together in a jiffy, thanks to a bag of shredded broccoli and carrot mix from Trader Joe's. Add the sliced green onions, chopped apples, I used Gala, some chopped walnuts, and the dried cranberries. Top with the Greek Yogurt dressing, and there you have it, a healthy, flavorful salad.  I was eating leftovers for lunch for several days. Enjoy! This could be your lunch tomorrow!

Broccoli Apple Slaw

1 12-16 oz bag of broccoli slaw mix
2 green onions sliced thin
2 small apples chopped
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/4 c plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 mayo or Miracle Whip
2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl.  Whisk together Greek yogurt, Miracle Whip and vinegar in a small bowl.  Pour over salad ingredients, and chill until serving time.

  2. Becky, This salad is indeed a party in a bowl! I rely on Trader Joe's slaw products too, but the way you've dressed this up keeping it light and healthy sings summer.

    1. Broccoli Slaw mix has shredded broccoli and carrots, that it. If you can't find Broccoli slaw mix, you can just use broccoli florets.
