In typical Lisa-fashion, I found a recipe I liked, then butchered it until it resembled the original one almost ZERO.
I have no idea why I am like this as a person.
This is what I used:
2 Granny Smith apples, diced.
Maybe 1/4 cup of red onion. You're supposed to dice it, but I can't even.
2 cups of broccoli florets. From a bag, yo.
A big handful of shredded carrots.
1 cup of Hellmann's mayo. NOT 1/2 mayo 1/2 Greek yogurt. But you do you.
3 tbl of lemon juice.
I eliminated the cranberries (because, ew), and 1 TBL of sugar (because, diabetes)
I also added 2 TBL of sour cream and a handful of shredded sharp cheddar.
You don't have to be like me.
What I did:
I died, that's what. Scott was at work and I had to attempt to cut up the onion by myself.
It's a no from me. I diced the apples then added what little of onion I cut up. I didn't dice the onion because I wanted the flavor from the onion, but to NOT bite into a piece.
I then added the broccoli and carrots.
The best part? It called for chopped pecans. Now I watch Ree Drummond chop things all the time, with zero effort. Not only would I chop the tip of my finger off, nothing would turn out right.
I chopped the pecans in the most Lisa-way I could think of.
In a ziploc bag.
With a flash light.
I shook it all up, then added the "dressing".
Mayo, lemon juice, s&p.
I'm going to need my mother to look away.
Once it was all coated, I tasted it. It was good, but it just needed "something".
I added two tablespoons of sour cream, a handful of shredded sharp cheddar, and topped it with more pecans.
Whilst eating, I was thinking of all the things that I could add next time. Sunflower seeds, cubed sharp cheddar, bacon....
The opportunities are endless :)
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
