Broccoli Apple Salad (No Mayo)

This broccoli apple salad is a great reminder that not all salads need to be lettuce-based. Instead of lettuce, this salad uses crunchy broccoli as the base. Crisp apples, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds give it those fall flavors we are all craving this time of year.
