I have made this salad more times than I can count. It was a salad we had picked up at our local deli one night for an easy side to our BBQ. I loved the combo, but hated that everything felt drenched in dressing! I knew I wanted to recreate it healthier..so on the hunt I went for inspiration. We could eat this all the time. It is fresh, travels well, and keeps well in the fridge for several days. A perfect picnic food too!
1/4 cup allowed mayonnaise, I used my own homemade
1/4 cup allowed sour cream or yogurt (I used So Delicious Plain Yogurt)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar, or equivalent of stevia powder
12 oz broccoli florets, and peeled broccoli stalks
4-5 pieces bacon, cooked & crumbled (my favorite is Trader Joe’s applewood smoked, nitrate free)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
Whisk the dressing ingredients together and set aside. Either chop the broccoli small, or pulse it a few times in a food processor. I prefer this over larger florets. In a large bowl, toss all the ingredients, and dressing to taste. Store in the refrigerator!
