Words cannot describe how amazing this is..... and I left out the Mayo!
Thank you Mayo for so easily leaving this recipe!
Complexity Level: EasyHealthy Broccoli Salad (Mayo-Free!)
What You Need:
1 Large Broccoli Crown, chopped (about 3 1/2 cups raw broccoli chopped)
1 cup Chopped or Shredded Carrots
3/4 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Sugar Substitute or 1/3 cup Sugar
1/2 Yellow Onion, finely chopped
1 cup Fat Free Plain Yogurt (use Greek for more Protein!)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
In a large bowl, whisk the sugar substitute (or sugar), salt, pepper, and garlic powder until combined.
Place the diced broccoli, carrots, raisins, and onion into the bowl, and mix to coat evenly. This can be eaten right away, or made ahead of time and left to chill.
While thinking about this salad (and enjoying a giant bowl of it) I pondered about variations I could make. Craisins added would be awesome, so would shredded cheddar cheese and even bacon (if your into meat).
But as I thought of these, I couldn't help but also think how delicious and simple this salad was to make. And in using yogurt, fat free yogurt to bet, an entire cup of mayo was cut out. I can't even imagine those pounds it would have added!
I hope you enjoy this too!
