In case you’ve been stuck under a rock – or, on a rock, in my case, it’s officially pumpkin season.

Healthier Broccoli Salad

Quick word association! Ready? Summer = ______?

For me, summer is all about BBQing. In Hawaii we grilled all year long, and I never thought much about it. But in Portland, things are a little bit different. No one wants to cook dinner outside in the pouring rain – so we do it all summer long to soak up as much grilling as we can while the sun is out. I would eat just about anything cooked on a grill. I would also eat just about anything that accompanies most of these dishes. You know, like potato salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad, etc. Basically, anything covered in cream.

You know I’m not a health nut, but finding a healthy alternative to my fave dishes is always a good thing. This week I’m totally patting myself on the back for making this healthier version of Broccoli Salad. It’s so good – and will definitely be our (guilt free) Go To side dish this summer.

Broccoli salad is normally loaded with mayonnaise and bacon (yum, I know), sugar, and cheese to boot. My version omits the sugar and cheese completely. Greek yogurt rocks my world, and acts as a perfect substitute for that creamy texture that’s normally hard to replicate. And guess what else I did? I swapped bacon for turkey bacon. Let me just say that I will choose real bacon 99.9% of the time because I’m a bacon snob. But the turkey bacon is so perfect in this dish. All in all, way healthier than the traditional broccoli salad huh?
