Delicious Raw Broccoli Salad

Finally A Broccoli Salad with NO MAYO!!!

I have to confess, broccoli isn't my favorite veggie even though I really wish it were because of its great health benefits. If I were really honest, I would 'fess up and tell you, it's in the bottom 3 of my favorites. BUT there is hope on the horizon, I concocted this new recipe that I love so much, I think I could make it once a week!

3 crowns of broccoli, chopped
1 Granny Smith Apple, chopped
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 of a red onion, diced really small

1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 TBSP honey or brown sugar
2 tsp Tarragon Vinegar
1 lemon, juiced

Prepare all your ingredients by washing and chopping them where needed. I used raw sunflower seeds, so I toasted them on the stove top by adding a 1/2 tsp Grape seed oil in a skillet with the sunflower seeds. I continually turned them until they were toasty brown and added a sprinkle of sea salt to them.... they were so YUMMY! Then I made the dressing, whisked it together and poured it over top, tossed it and served it immediately. This salad doesn't do well to serve it the next day because the apples get mushy, so eat it right away!
