Delicious Quick and Healthy Broccoli Salad

I love a good broccoli salad with crunchy nuts, crisp broccoli, and a hint of sweetness in the dressing.  Unfortunately most of them are doused in mayonnaise, sprinkled with bacon and coated in sugar.  Neither mayo, bacon, nor sugar are things I want to be eating much of so I created my own version after looking at a lot of different recipes..

Broccoli Salad
1 head of fresh broccoli (1 1/2 lbs.)
1 small red onion thinly sliced
1/2  cup raisins (grapes would be a good substitute)
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, sunflower seeds or any other nut
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 Tbs white whine vinegar
1 tsp sugar

Bacon and real mayo (especially if you make it yourself) are awesome. Sugar--definitely needs be gone from recipes. Thanks for that updated version!

I found your blog via Power of Moms and came here BECAUSE I also am a homeschooling mom expecting my fifth child :-D said...

Marcy thanks for giving it a try, but if you love the bacon and sugar it may not be the same :) But good on you for being brave!! said...
