Summer Broccoli Apple Almond Salad

Broccoli contains glucosinolates which are powerful anti-cancer agents that neutralize cancer-causing substances before they can damage healthy cells. Broccoli also supports liver health and digestion.

You will always find some organic broccoli in my fridge. I may steam it and have it as a side with dinner, I use some in my smoothies and juices and in my salads such as this easy delicious summer salad. The broccoli is chopped into small pieces with some of the stem because there are a lot of nutrients there and it taste good as well. I’ve added chopped apples, lots of parsley and mint, yellow raisins, sliced almonds and raw sunflower seeds.

Topped with a light lemon vinaigrette and your set for lunch and dinner if you like for a few days with no cooking in this summer weather and soon to be July steaming hot summer.
