Mix and Match Broccoli Salad

Mix and Match Broccoli Salad

I took parts of 2 different cooking light recipes and came up with the following!

The most important part is the dressing- that is where you save your calories! So add what you like and enjoy!

I really like the taste and hope you do too! Another option – if you actually live somewhere where there is a Trade Joe or maybe Whole Foods (I haven’t checked there) – get a bag of simply cranberry and nuts for the dried fruit and nut stuff – use a 1/2 cup of that! 

Broccoli Salad

4 cups small broccoli florets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
3 center-cut bacon slice, cooked and crumbled (drained)
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup chopped mixed nuts
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.

Combine mayonnaise and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture, and toss well. Chill for 1 hour.
