Prep time: 30 minutes
Ingredients: broccoli (2 or 3 crowns), chopped red onion (half), apple cider vinegar (4 tbsp or more), Greek yogurt or mayonnaise (1 cup), Sweet Leaf liquid stevia extract
Optional ingredients: chopped carrots, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, crumbled bacon, dried fruit (craisins, raisins, blueberries, etc.), chopped apple
Note: I chop my ingredients into small pieces because I have small children. 
Step 1: Rinse broccoli. Break up the crown into small bite-size pieces and chop the stems into small pieces. Put them into a large bowl that will hold the finished broccoli salad.

Step 2: Rinse carrots. Then, chop the carrots and add them to the large bowl.

Step 3: Chop red onion and add it to the mixing bowl.

Step 4: Make the dressing mix in a separate bowl. Mix 1 cup of Greek yogurt or mayonnaise*, 4 tablespoons (or more) of apple cider vinegar, and 1 dropper full of Sweet Leaf stevia extract.
Note: Taste the mix and adjust the taste and consistency to your preferences.
* This salad is definitely healthier using Greek yogurt. You could do a little of each until you transition to all Greek yogurt if you want. When using Greek yogurt, I also include about a tbsp of fresh lemon juice.

Step 5: Add in any extra ingredients like the sunflower seeds or Craisins. After mixing in all of the ingredients, cover the bowl, and put it in the fridge until it's time to serve.

Note: I think this salad tastes best after it has cooled and sat for several hours. I've definitely served it after making it fresh when I didn't have time to make it in advance. But, we do prefer it cooled.
This salad is a favorite in my family. My husband has always loved it. In fact, when it's in the fridge, he'll snack on it throughout the day. Since the sweetener has zero calories, it's pretty healthy (depending what mayonnaise you use).

While I chop the ingredients, my girls like to munch on the veggies. I definitely don't feel bad about them snacking on veggies though.

This recipe is sure to please. It has a twang and sweetness that satisfies any sweet tooth along with fulfilling the need to crunch.
