A refreshingly different salad with a make-ahead option.

To save time the day of your dinner, prepare the dressing and steam the broccoli ahead, and refrigerate until you’re ready to toss the salad.


1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon Djjon mustard
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups small broccoli florets
12 cups mesclun or spring mix
1 medium red apple, cut into bite-size cubes


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk oil, orange juice, lemon juice, honey, mustard, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. Steam broccoli 3 minutes or until just tender; cool under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. In a large bowl, combine mesclun, broccoli and apple. Add dressing and toss gently.
