Ingredients
  • 1.5 lbs. – broccoli
  • ½ large - lemon
  • 1 lb. – small red grapes
  • 1 cup – almond slivers
  • Dressing and Seasoning:
  • ½ cup – mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Rinse broccoli well. Cut the broccoli florets into bite size pieces. Squeeze lemon juice over the broccoli. Mix it well for 30 seconds or until broccoli absorbs all the lemon juice (leaving no lemon at the bottom). Let the broccoli sit on the counter top for an hour and a half. (TIP: Lemon juice helps remove chemicals/pesticides, improves taste, softens the veggies, removes the bitterness, adds crunchiness, preserves the bright green color and gives delicious lemony aroma.)
  2. Heat the oven to 350 F. Toast almonds for 15 min at 350 F. Take toasted almonds out of the oven and let them cool completely before use.
  3. Rinse and dry grapes a with paper towel. Cut grapes in half.
  4. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. (If you are not ready to serve yet, cover with plastic food wrap and refrigerated until ready) Add mayonnaise and mix it in well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve immediately.
