A sprinkling of sugar creates the sweet-sharp taste of a traditional broccoli salad dressing, but you can reduce the amount if desired.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat pine nuts in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 4 to 5 minutes or until toasted and fragrant.

Step 2

Whisk together blue cheese crumbles and next 8 ingredients in a large bowl; add broccoli, apple, and cherries, gently tossing to coat. Cover and chill 2 to 8 hours; stir in toasted pine nuts just before serving.

I really liked this but my husband, who likes broccoli, would not touch it and the blue cheese scared off others. It makes a lot. I would make half the amount next time. Used non fat yogurt in place of the sour cream and cranberries in place of cherries. Also reduced sugar.

This is one fantastic salad! I used apricots in place of dried cherries with great success. Also easy to sub greek yogurt for mayo for a healthier dressing. Thanks for this great recipe.
