Broccoli salad is usually drowning in a creamy, often very sweet, dressing and studded with 1/2 pound crumbled bacon, making it more about the creamy dressing and bacon than about the actual broccoli. Ours uses a combination of canola mayonnaise and Greek yogurt to keep the calories in check. We opt for center-cut bacon (a bit less of it) and swap the usual raisins for lower-sugar dried cranberries to pack a subtle punch of tart. The best part of this salad? The longer it sits, the better…

I love slaw! Great thing to prepare a whole lot of and just have for a side dish during the week to grt your dose of raw leafy green veggies! Of course abstaining from mayo is the key to a nice healthy slaw ;)
In a large bowl combine broccoli, carrots, red onion, apples, pecans, and dried cranberries. To make the dressing: Whisk together mayonnaise, greek yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Add the dressing to the salad and toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
