Fruity Broccoli Salad

by | Updated: February 8th, 2017

Head for the hills! Just don’t forget to pack some snacks to keep you fueled for the trails. Making your ascent is not only treacherous but tiring, which means a pack of pretzels and a box of raisins aren’t going to cut it. What you need is a trail-blazing broccoli salad that’s as fresh as the scenery you’re Snapchatting and as fulfilling as the hike itself. To keep that trail-mix feel, you’ll add diced apple and slivered almonds. A squeeze of lemon juice will keep everything crisp as you crunch, munch and keep climbing.
