Broccoli, Carrot, Cabbage and Apple Salad

It’s a challenge getting many children to eat vegetables. But I only added fruits and vegetables that the children in my care like to this salad and the children gobbled it up. The key is to offer small amounts of new vegetable dishes with other foods the children like without forcing them to eat new recipes — just offer it them and allow them to eat what they like. Add some dried cranberries or golden raisins if the children like them. Prepare this salad up to eight hours in advance for best flavor and texture.

You Will Need:

1 (1 1/4-pound) head of broccoli
1 ¼ cups favorite apples chopped (about 1/2 pound)
1/2 purple cabbage shredded
3 carrots shredded
2 ½ tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon canola oil
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt

What to Do:

1. Combine first the vinegar, mustard, oil, pepper, and salt in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

2. Coarsely chop broccoli into 1 1/2-inch pieces and place in bowl with vinegar mixture. Add shredded cabbage, carrots, and chopped apple, tossing to coat.
