This time of year, my craving for a refreshing, healthy salad is just about insatiable. And while I can’t live without the go-to kale or arugula variety, a weeklong marathon of the same salad on repeat usually has me longing for something other than leafy greens and veggies topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Enter my newest obsession: this raw broccoli salad with apples and dried cranberries, and a Sriracha dill yogurt dressing. The crunchy broccoli florets and apple make it super hearty and filling, while the the rest of the ingredients pack a major flavor punch. Keep reading for the easy breezy recipe, and thank us later for your new favorite springtime salad.

    Saw this the moment I decided one more leaf of arugula just might make me turn green! Love the unexpected combination of sweet/savory/crunchy. Should wake up a side of grilled salmon or chicken quite nicely.

    I made this last night. It was a hearty and filling salad with a great dressing. Personally, I would recommend less red onion as the Sriracha adds enough of a kick.
