Broccoli Is Bearable Salad

I could never stomach raw broccoli until I tried this salad. It's pretty low fat if you use light mayo and hey, the broccoli cancels that out right? Besides broccoli, this salad has all sorts of goodies to hand out- apples, pumpkin seeds, berries, and whatever else your little heart desires. This salad makes two decent sized portions.

Broccoli is Bearable Salad:
half a head of broccoli, cut into florets
half a head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 small red apple (or whatever you have on hand, I used washington), cut into chunks
2 slices of your fave lunch meat, torn into small pieces (I like black pepper turkey)
1/4 cup dried mixed berries (I had a blend of dried raisins, cranberries,cherries, and blueberries)
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
3 tbsp light mayo (olive oil mayo or even veganese would go nicely with this too)
1 tsp raw honey (if you buy your honey local it can help with allergies!)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
pinch of salt, to taste
1.) Combine the liquids (mayo, vinegar, and honey) in a medium bowl, mix well.
2.)Then add the rest of the ingredients (unless you like your seeds super crunchy, if you do leave them out). Toss and stir to coat every piece in delicous mayo goodness.
3.) Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors really develop.
4.) If you left the pumpkin seeds out then sprinkle them over the top at this point, then serve, and remind people to eat their broccoli more often! :) Maybe they will now?
