Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad is a great crunchy side dish or potluck dish for summer. Many broccoli salad recipes are typically made with high-fat mayonnaise. Substituting low-fat mayonnaise and non-fat Greek yogurt in this recipe saves calories and fat.

Ingredients:
2 ½ cups chopped raw broccoli
¼ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1-2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons raisins, currants or cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (cashews, pecans, almonds)

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. Makes 5 1/2 cup servings.
