Steamed broccoli can get boring after a while, which is why I created this crunchy, flavor-filled salad. Lightly steamed broccoli and a slightly sweet dressing made with wholesome ingredients like Greek yogurt and maple syrup, make this simple side dish impossible to resist.
Ingredients
  • 6 cups bite-size broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons 0%-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • Kosher salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Steam the broccoli florets for 3 minutes. Once steamed, immediately remove to a bowl and place in the refrigerator, uncovered, to cool, about 20 minutes.
  2. While the broccoli is cooling, place the yogurt, mayonnaise, maple syrup, and vinegar in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Top the broccoli with the dressing and stir until the florets are evenly coated. Top with the cranberries and almonds, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
