Recipe: Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw
We've lightened this popular potluck classic with a dressing of reduced-fat mayo and yogurt. To speed preparation, use shredded broccoli slaw from the produce aisle.

Makes 8 servings, 3/4 cup each

Ingredients:
4 slices turkey bacon
1 12- to 16-ounce bag shredded broccoli slaw or 1 large bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 8-ounce can low-sodium sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup finely diced red onion (1/2 medium)



Instructions:


1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, turning frequently, until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. (Alternatively, microwave on High for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.) Drain bacon on paper towels. Chop coarsely.

2. If using whole broccoli, trim about 3 inches off the stems. Chop the rest into 1/4-inch pieces.

3. Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add water chestnuts, onion, bacon and broccoli; toss to coat. Chill until serving time.

Tips:
Cover and chill for up to 2 days.

Great idea, thanks!
Sometimes I like to add just Poppyseed dressing to slaw. It's ultra-fast and really good! :)
