Skinny Broccoli Salad
I love Broccoli Salad. With such a healthy main ingredient, it only seems right that it be given an equally nutritious dressing to coat it in. Replacing the mayo with plain Greek yogurt bumps up the protein, yet cuts back on the unhealthy fats and calories. Plus, it tastes just as delicious!
- 1 medium head of broccoli, chopped into small pieces
- 1/4 cup red onion, diced
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup raisins, or a (1 oz) box
- 3-4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar

Combine broccoli, onion, sunflower seeds, raisins, and bacon in a large bowl. Set aside.
Stir together Greek yogurt, sugar, and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour over the top of broccoli mixture and stir evenly to coat
Tastes great when served immediately. If you need to refrigerate it for later, you may want to prepare a bit more of the dressing to add in case it gets a little dry.
