Apple-Broccoli Salad

This recipe was wonderfully delicious. It does originally call for 1 cup of mayonnaise, and considering that we're trying to eat healthier around here, that was just WAY too much. So, instead of 1 cup of mayo, I only did 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and supplemented with 1/2 cup of yogurt. It was perfect! My 2 year old son ate all the broccoli and left the apples and raisins. Weird kid.

This would be the perfect dish to take to a potluck dinner or summer BBQ.

Apple-Broccoli Salad

4 c broccoli florets
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c chopped pecans, toasted
2 Lg Red Delicious Apples
6 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 c mayo
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 or less c sugar
2 Tbsp cider vinegar

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Make sauce in a small bowl by combining the mayo, yogurt, sugar and vinegar. Pour sauce over broccoli mixture. Stir to coat. Cover & chill until time to eat!
