Not as good as the unhealthy version but still good
Raw Broccoli Salad
Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Copyright 2004
4 cups (about 2 pounds) broccoli florets or broccolini
¼ cup minced red onion
2 tablespoons Splenda Granular
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds shelled, roasted and salted I omitted these
3 tablespoons seedless raisins
Chop broccoli or broccolini into florets. Set aside.
Whisk together remaining ingredients in medium bowl. Add broccoli. Toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
This recipe was on my 'to make' list for quite some time. A few weeks ago, Claire made a version of this and then broccoli went on sale a few days later so I figured that was my cue to make this. I had made a much heavier version of broccoli salad, with cheese and bacon way back when and I'm not going to lie, that version is much, much better. This salad was way too 'dry' for my taste. I had to mix up more dressing to make it passable. But, I still ended up with a decent broccoli salad that is much lighter than the other version.
This is my contribution to Sweetnick's ARF/5-A-Day Tuesday this week.
A Blast From the Past: Broccoli Slaw from March 2006. Another light, broccoli recipe that I've mean meaning to make again.
Question of the Day: When did you last eat broccoli?
