This post should’ve gone up a little over a week ago…but thanks to my ridiculously awesome internet for being slow and overall worthless, I haven’t been able to use the internet let alone post on my blog.
Anyways, I’ve made broccoli salad numerous times but I’ve never made it this way. this my healthier version of the traditional mayonnaise based salad. I substituted plain yogurt and used a natural sweetener to make this better for your body and soul. Summer is my favorite time for salads and broccoli salad is a great dish to bring to your picnic in the backyard or served in a small bowl as a side with some freshly grilled portabella burgers!
Mise en Place:
-1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
-2 Heads Broccoli, washed, florets cut small, stems removed
-1/4 Cup Cider vinegar
-4 Tablespoons Honey
-1 Avocado, diced
-4 Strips Bacon, Cooked and chopped
-1/2 White Onion, small dice
-1/2 Bell Pepper, small dice
-Garnishes (ie: grated cheese [Blue cheese], dried fruit, nuts, seeds, cooked beets) Optional
Method of Prep:
-In a small bowl, mix together yogurt, vinegar and honey.
-Add in broccoli and all vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well until everything in evenly combined.
-Sprinkle garnishes on top if desired.
-keep cold until ready to eat.
-Serve cold and eat immediately.
