Broccoli and apples with a tasty dressing

You will need:

1-2 heads broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces

(you may want to VERY lightly steam the broccoli, but not actually cook it)

1/2 cup chopped scallions

3-4 tbsp dried cranberries

1 cup apple, diced

1/2 cup seeds i.e. sesame, pumpkin, sliced almonds

For the dressing:

1/2 cup 100% pure olive oil

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

4 tbsp plain goat kefir, or greek yogurt w/t live probiotics

2 tbsp purple (or sweet) basil, chopped

sea salt

1. Toss all the main ingredients in a large bowl.

2. Make the dressing and season it with sea salt, then toss with the main ingredients.

3. Chill for 30 minutes, serve.

(In the image, the broccoli is served with sweet potatoes that have been sliced into “fries” using a special grater for vegetables, then cooked in 2 tbsp coconut oil and sprinkled with sea salt.  Stone ground mustard as the condiment.)
