Skinny Broccoli Salad. Healthy Broccoli Salad. Luv Stefani.

I totally forgot about this salad until I came across it at a deli over the weekend. I normally avoid any kind of salad dressed in a heavy mayo based dressing because kind of defeats the point of it being healthy when its drenched in mayo, and sugar.


I went home determined to take this classic summer salad recipe, and turn in into a version I could enjoy guilt free.


I came up with this recipe, and I have to say its pretty spot on. It's a great option for easy make ahead meals because it actually tastes even better once it sits overnight, and it can be made all in one bowl with no cooking required.


Recipe

1 Large Head Rough Chopped Broccoli

1/4 Cup Diced Red Onion

1/4 Cup Rough Chopped Walnuts

2 Tbs Sunflower Seeds

1/8 Cup Unsweetened Dried Cranberries


Dressing

3/4 Cup 0% Greek or Plain Yogurt

3 TBS Light Mayo

1/2 Tbs Swerve Sweetener/ Sugar Free Syrup/Pure Maple Syrup

1/2 Tsp Digon Mustard

3 Tbs White Vinigar

1/2 Tsp Salt

Pepper ToTaste


Method


-Chop up broccoli, walnuts, and onion and add to a large bowl.

-In a separate bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing.

- Add dressing to the broccoli mixture, add in cranberries, and fold together.

-Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 min before eating, the flavours really come together once it has some time to marinate.


-This makes about 4 portions, and will last at least 3-4 days in the fridge.


This is a great healthy salad to bring to a summer picnic, bbq, or take to work for lunches.
