Broccoli Fruit Waldorf Salad

Broccoli Waldorf Salad is a delicious combination of fruits, vegetables and nuts!

I grew up eating this salad, though my mom made her Broccoli Waldorf Salad with sunflower seeds instead of pecans.  I thought all waldorf salad had broccoli in it until I started looking for a recipe and nothing was right!  So to me, this Broccoli Waldorf Salad is what waldorf salads are supposed to be!

I make my Broccoli Waldorf Salad with both dried cranberries and raisins, but you can easily use either.  And I use gala apples, but if you want a bit of tartness, use granny smith instead. 

I love that this is a really easy recipe, and that you can basically add or subtract any ingredients you’d like.  You can make it ahead of time, just stir it up really well right before serving, and it will look as good as new.
