  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 large tart-sweet apples (I used Gala), cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds


  1. In a large pot fitted with a steamer, steam the broccoli for 3 to 5 minutes until it turns bright green (but is still hard). Rinse under cold water until cool.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, maple syrup, mustard, salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cold broccoli, apples and sunflower seeds. Add dressing and gently toss to coat. Serve!
