Why Make This Broccoli Apple Salad

This salad will please the taste bug with the bite of flavor from Silver Springs Non-GMO Prepared Horseradish You can use the regular or hot depending on your heat preference. This slaw is perfect for late summer/fall when apples are coming into season. You can choose any apple of choice.

I prefer gala apples for extra color but green apples will also work. This slaw isn’t too spicy, its the perfect balance of sweet with an interesting bite from the horseradish. These flavors are so unique together.

Silver Spring Foods, the world’s largest grower and processor of horseradish, offers a variety of horseradish products, sauces, and specialty mustards, including their new Non-GMO Horseradish. Find it at www.silverspringfoods.com, and use my promo code SAILORBAILEY20 for 20% off your purchase!

In case you didn’t know, prepared horseradish is a condiment made from the white root of the horseradish plant. The root is in the same family as mustard and wasabi.

I prefer to prepare my herbed baked salmon with this slaw, but chicken, shrimp or steak will be wonderful as the main to this side. Feel free to pair the slaw with anything but I have included the salmon in the recipe below with a side of green veggies.

    Made this for dinner last night my wife loved it and she’s not a big horseradish gal. She loved it with the salmon. We did roasted carrots instead of green beans,
