Ingredients

  • 4 cups broccoli bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup bacon bits
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup onion finely diced

Dressing

  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the broccoli by breaking it down into small bite sized pieces. 
  • Toss the small pieces of broccoli with the bacon bits, dried cranberries, chopped almonds, shredded parmesan cheese and onion in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, milk, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper until smooth.
  • Pour 2/3 of the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Reserve the remaining 1/3 to add to the salad right before serving. (The broccoli will soak up the dressing in the refrigerator)
