Apple Broccoli Salad with Cranberries

Apple Broccoli salad with Cranberries

My mom says you shouldn’t eat raw broccoli, but I still do it. 🙂
Most of the time just dipped in hummus, but now also in the form of this salad. The apple & cranberry add sweetness and the red onion makes it a bit spicy.  I ate this as a main meal, but you can easily make it as a side for another dish.
