1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cups canola oil
2 Tblsp. Finely chopped onion
1 head broccoli, tops only, broken into small florets (about 2 cups)
2 crisp, red apples, cut into small pieces

Toss together in a bowl with dressing. Cover and refrigerate.
Tear 1½ heads of romaine lettuce into bite size pieces.
