The crunch of fresh broccoli and nuts mixed with sweet chewy raisins in a creamy, tangy dressing make this simple salad a winner. Using non-fat Greek yogurt in place of half the mayo ups the protein and keeps fat in check.
2½ cups chopped raw broccoli
¼ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons raisins, currants or cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (cashews, pecans, almonds)
Before you begin: Wash your hands.
- Wash and chop the broccoli and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, raisins and nuts.
- Throw in the broccoli, and mix well until evenly covered with the dressing.
- Chill and serve.
