Cranberry Broccoli and Walnut Salad Recipe

 

Are you looking for a fresh and appealing side dish – try this Cranberry Broccoli and Walnut Salad Recipe.

Throwing together a pretty salad using seasonal veggies, nuts and berries might be just the thing!

A good friend of mine made this salad for me when I was a new mother, and it’s one of my favorites.

It’s also very easy to adapt using your preferred ingredients.

Add more veggies, or substitute dried cherries for a little more sweetness.

Use sunflower seeds instead of toasted walnuts for shorter prep time.

You start by cutting up fresh broccoli.

Place in a large bowl along with a cup of dried cranberries, a cup of toasted walnuts and bacon pieces.
