Chickpea Apple Broccoli Salad with Honey Dijon Dressing

I remember completely despising broccoli salad when I used to be growing up; each and every time it appeared on a celebration table it involves a large number of bizarre textures and a mayo-drenched salad. Yet ever since I created my tahini curry broccoli salad there’s not anything I really like more than REALLY, REALLY GOOD crunchy salad that doesn’t involve lettuce.

Today I’m again to reinvent the classic broccoli salad and get the birthday party table a bit bit more healthy with my fall inspired apple broccoli salad: it’s packed with chickpeas, crunchy candy honeycrisp apples (or no matter apples you’d like), dried cherries, pecans for some crunch and contemporary herbs.

The honey dijon dressing concerned brings it all in combination and damnnnnnn it's GOOD.

The easiest a part of this salad is that it’s no cook dinner and only takes about 20 mins to whip up. Chop all of your veggies and throw everything in a big bowl, toss with the dressing and you’re good to head!

The salad will keep excellent up to Five days in the fridge (the apple cider vinegar prevents the apples from browning!).
