Healthy Broccoli Salad

One of the yummiest Broccoli Salads ever. No mayo! Great for parties. Always a favorite.

I recently attended a baby shower for a friend of mine… and while there I got to eat up some broccoli salad with bacon in it. I had never seen anything like it before… so when I tasted it and liked it, I was on a mission to find a recipe similar.

All of the recipes I found though contained MAYO. I for one hate mayo :\ – although I will say, mixing it with other stuff makes it tolerable… but my distaste for it, made me not want to use it at all. So when I came across a recipe on Pinterest that used GREEK YOGURT instead, I was all for it!

This recipe is for a Healthy Broccoli Salad.

Feel free to print it below :) I made a few small changes but its mostly the same as the original.

Healthy Broccoli Salad

Ingredients

  • 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 1 (1 oz) box
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 TB raw sugar or honey granules
  • 1 1/2 TB white vinegar
  • 3-4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

Instructions

  1. Take the cut up broccoli, onion, sunflower seeds, raisins and bacon and throw it into a large bowl.
  2. In a seperate bowl stir together greek yogurt, the sugar (or honey granules), vinegar and stir together.
  3. Once mixed well, pour over top of the broccoli mixture and stir evenly. Also do take in mind this makes a lot of dressing. SO if you are like me and prefer less dressing, feel free to customize this any way you like. I honestly only used about 1/4 of the dressing on a batch. So I plan to just save that other bit of dressing for the next time I make this salad.
  4. Serve up immediately. Or refrigerate and serve later. If you plan to do this for a party, add dressing last... so maybe on the way to the party. If this sits with the dressing on it, it isn't as good.
  5. Enjoy! :)
