This crunchy, creamy salad is a delicious mix of savoury and sweet flavours. Perfect as a side dish or base for a meal!


  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 3/4 cup apples, chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup carrots, julienned
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • optional: 4 tbsp dried cranberries


  • 3/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Mix all dressing ingredients in a jar or small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • Place broccoli, apple, onion, carrots, and bacon (plus optional dried cranberries, if using) in a large bowl.

Makes 4 servings. Count each serving as 1/2 portion fruit (group 4) and 4 portions fat (group 7). The amount of carrot per serving is minimal, so we can consider the vegetables here to be free.
