Updated Broccoli Salad Made LIGHT

I’ve been getting restless with my meal prepping. It’s so easy to prepare the same ol’ dishes. Soon enough we find ourselves turning into a well oiled meal prepping machine.

When going to food buffets (one too many times!), what I loved the most was the broccoli salad from the salad bar!

I would convince myself it was a healthy dish even though the thought of a heavy, sugary, creamy sauce is what kept it all together. Down the road I looked up recipes and boy, was I more than right! Most broccoli salads call for bacon, mayonnaise and almost a 1/4 cup of sugar! No ma’am!

I’m certain any recipe can be swapped with ingredients to be made healthier. As a matter of fact, there’s one right here! I’ve created a healthier version of broccoli salad before but was able to spruce it up a little more!

Prepare a large bowl with all of your dry ingredients

3 raw broccoli florets

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup raisins or craisins

1/4 cup shredded carrots

1/4 cup chopped red onion


In a separate bowl you will blend together the plain greek yogurt and white vinegar. I did a drop of vanilla stevia and realized a little deffinitely goes a long way! That step is optional and completely up to you! Pour and blend this mixture into the bowl of veggies and other dry ingredients, then refrigerate.

Enjoy ladies and gents’!
