Broccoli Slaw w/Apples and Walnuts

This was ok -- haha...but I think it's just me.  My challenge group LOVED it - and so did Rossy.  I'm just not really a fan of cold broccoli, but I would eat it again -- I just didn't look forward to the leftovers like I normally do!
Serves 4: 1 green, 1 purple, 1 orange

2 medium heads of broccoli, chopped
1 large carrot, grated
1 apple, cored and finely chopped
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
¼ cup dried cranberries

Ingredients for the dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise (recipe below)
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. honey (optional)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the dressing. Mix well and season to taste. In large bowl, combine the broccoli, carrot, apple, onion, cranberries, and walnut.  Mix as much dressing as you like in the salad and toss until well combined.  Serve right away or refrigerate before serving.

Mayo Ingredients 
1 ¼ cup EVOO
1 egg
½ teaspoon mustard powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine egg, ¼ cup olive oil, mustard powder, and salt in a food processor.  Mix thoroughly.  While the food processor is running, slowly drizzle in the remaining cup of olive oil.  After you’ve added all the oil and the mixture has emulsified, add lemon juice to taste, stirring gently with a spoon to incorporate.
