Light Broccoli Salad

I am a sucker for yummy Broccoli Salad and since I had a garden fresh head of broccoli that Jeanne sent home with me, I was craving this light side dish like none other.   Sadly, the recipe that usually gets passed around is always loaded with mayo.

Uh, yuck.  

So, I went on a quest to find a lighter version and combined 2-3 recipes to make my own healthier, guilt free broccoli salad.

It’s basically awesome and you should make it.



All the yummy ingredients, pre-dressing.


  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 small box raisins
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, crisped and crumbled
  • Small container greek yogurt (5oz)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • sea salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)


  • Combine broccoli, onion, raisins, turkey bacon, almonds and pine nuts in bowl.
  • In a small bowl whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar and salt and pepper.
  • Pour over veggie mix and stir to coat.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve.
  • Enjoy!
