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.
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.
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.
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.
