Who doesn't love a broccoli salad in springtime?
1 medium broccoli head
1 medium cauliflower head
3/4 cup dried cranberries craisins
1/2 cup almond slices toasted on a dry skillet until golden
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice from 1 small lemon
1/2 cup real mayonnaise
Peel the the broccoli stem and chop off the dry base. Chop broccoli into small florets and dice the stem.
Remove and discard cauliflower core and dice the rest.
Toast 1/2 cup almonds on a dry skillet over med/high heat, tossing frequently until fragrant and golden, then add to salad bowl along with 3/4 cup craisins.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup mayo, 2 Tbsp honey and 2 Tbsp lemon juice. Add dressing to the salad and toss well to combine.
*Fresh lemon juice makes all the difference - when you only have 3 ingredients in the dressing, each one really counts.
