How to Make the Broccoli Salad Dressing with Greek Yogurt
This recipe is super easy to put together….
STEP 1: Mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar and honey in a large bowl.
STEP 2: Prep the broccoli by cutting it into bite size pieces.
If super crunchy broccoli isn’t your thing, you can even microwave it in a bowl with a tablespoon of water for about a minute. It will take a little of the bite out of it!
Add the broccoli florets and red onions and toss to coat in the dressing mixture.
STEP 3: Add the cranberries, sunflower seeds, and bacon.
Stir to mix.
It’s really that easy, friends!
This is also an awesome field meal we love, too!
