Broccoli Salad in white bowl with Honey Yogurt Dressing

Dislike raw broccoli? Try this delicious recipe from Jackie Bedard. You might just change your mind.


Honey Yogurt Dressing
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly cracked pepper

4 cups broccoli florets
1/4 red onion
1 carrot
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup sunflower seeds


Prepare the dressing by stirring together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper. Set the dressing aside.

Cut the broccoli into very small florets. Place the florets in a colander and rinse with cool water, then drain. Peel the carrot, then use a large-holed grater to shred the carrot. Slice the red onion into paper thin strips. Add the rinsed and drained broccoli to a large bowl, along with the shredded carrot, sliced onion, cranberries, and sunflower seeds.

Pour the prepared dressing over top, then stir until coated. Let the salad marinate for 10-15 minutes before serving. I like to add grilled chicken for a little protein. Enjoy!
