Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts

We tried this salad in one of our friends house warming parties and like most Filipino gatherings there are tons of Filipino food served, dishes like pancit, kare kare, lumpia and fried chicken.  While I haven’t noticed all of the dishes served because there are only four that I can recall out of the 8 to 10 viands served what struck me most was a non-Filipino dish needed attention.  In Filipino gatherings most Filipinos just go straight for their favourite Filipino dish, so serving something non-Filipino will never or get less attention.  During this event it was this Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts Salad.  As a foodie I do explore a lot and if there is something that I haven’t tried yet, that is one of the first things that will take place on my plate.

First, I grabbed a small amount of that salad and after giving it my first bite, it was like love at first sight! or first taste in that manner.  It was surprisingly good, so good usually that thought stays in me as I enjoy the moment but during that time, I did announce it to everyone how good that was, like an unexpected climax.  Everyone then became so intrigued and gave it a shot and most of them had the same sentiments.  After that everyone asked for the recipe and I had written it down, while there are no exact quantities given all of the elements were mentioned.

Today our recipe is a recreation of that salad we tried, was so happy I got is spot on because this Fresh Broccoli and Apple Salad with Walnuts is one of the best tasting salad, I tried this year so far.  I never knew raw broccoli can be good like this.
