Broccoli Apple Salad

Broccoli is naturally loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, making it a powerhouse vegetable. It is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, phosphorus, calcium, and folate and it contains antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. Broccoli also has anti-inflammatory properties, improves heart health, improves blood sugar and boosts the immune system. This recipe is paired with granny smith apples which are beneficial for improving liver detoxification, gallbladder function, and gut health.

Broccoli apple salad is a wonderful side dish and a fantastic way to get extra fiber in your diet. This recipe is super simple to make and requires no cooking or fancy gadgets.
