Apple Broccoli Salad

This is what I came up for my lunch today.  I am still recuperating from my foot injury.  I’m on crutches and can’t move around for more than 15 minutes in my kitchen, but this was super quick and easy.

1 medium-sized broccoli head, cut into bite size
1 apple
1/4 raw walnuts, preferably soaked for 6 hours
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup hummus of your choice (I used Trader Joe’s white bean & basil hummus)
2 Tbsp dried cranberries
Salt & pepper

1. Boil water in a medium size pot.
2. Slice apple into bite size. Place them in a medium size bowl, sprinkle lemon juice and mix well.
3. Dilute hummus with some water to make sauce. If you want some sweetness, add a little bit of sweetener, such as maple syrup or honey.
4. Cook broccoli in boiling water for 15 seconds. Transfer into a colander immediately and run cold water.
5. Add broccoli, sauce, walnuts and cranberries to the apple bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

*Feel free to add some other ingredients such as onion slices, mushroom slices, and raisins if you like.
