I saw delicious recipe in a magazine that Walmart gives out for free. In Walmart LiveBetter Summer 2013 pg 22, Broccoli, apple & bacon salad had very nice balance between citrus taste of apple with crunchy broccoli.
A slight change I made with this recipe is that I steamed the broccoli a little to punch out the flavor more.
