  • 1/4 cup red onion , diced

In a large bowl, combine together chopped broccoli, diced apple, diced pear, diced red onion, cashews (toasted or roasted) and dried cranberries.

In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, sour cream (or kefir or Greek yogurt), lemon juice, honey, and salt. Note that honey should be soft and runny, warm it up if needed, so that it mixes easily. Whisk the ingredients until well combined and smooth. Add salt if needed.

      Absolutely delicious! My mother shared this recipe with me. Great for a quick lunch. My parents travel in their RV and my mom likes to make this to bring along because it keeps better than lettuce-based salads.
