Broccoli & Walnut Salad 

This is an absolute favorite, i love it and our family loves it too, we first made it at little s birthday party, along with the homemade coleslaw, chilli and baked potatoes. This weekend I made it for our oldest daughters baby shower, we had a BBQ even though the weather was cold it was still great fun.

We have also made it using Greek yogurt and mayo but never the sour cream with Greek yogurt which I imagine is much healthier so maybe one day I will have to try it, but been as we don’t have this very often, I use the mayo 🙂


2 medium fresh broccoli heads

1 large carrot grated

1/2 cup walnuts

1/4 cup red onion

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1 Apple cored and chopped

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup soured cream

2 TBS lemon juice

1tsp sugar

Black pepper


Toast walnuts on a dry skillet for approx 4-5 mins and then chop them finely

Combine chopped broccoli, grated carrot, chopped Apple, onion, walnut and cranberries in a mixing bowl

Mix together mayonnaise, soured cream, lemon juice, sugar and black pepper then pour over mixture and stir until combined.

  1. What a great summer recipe. We love broccoli and cranberries. I Yum’d it so I can make it later. My husband has a walnut allergy so I’d probably substitute pecans.

  2. Yum, this sounds so delish. I’ve made a broccoli salad before, but have never incorporated walnuts. I am pinning this to try within the next week or two!
