Amy’s Broccoli Salad

I love broccoli salad. It’s a mayo based salad, almost like a slaw, that usually has sunflower seeds, raisins and bits of bacon strewn throughout.

Mmm, bacon.

Not so good for the waistline, however. I wanted to use it as part of a complete meal so instead of bacon I used my beloved Starkist Hickory Smoked tuna, which also serves as the protein and makes this a damn fine lunch.

Make this a day or two ahead of time so the vinegar has time to break down the raw broccoli a bit and the flavors meld nicely. The recipe below is for one serving, so you can multiply as necessary.

Amy’s Broccoli Salad

1 cup raw chopped broccoli
2 Tbls dried cranberries (like Ocean Spray craisins)
2 Tbls diced red onion
1 packet Hickory Smoked tuna
2 Tbls white wine vinegar
1 packet Splenda
3 Tbls fat free mayonnaise

In a medium bowl combine the broccoli, tuna, onion, and craisins. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, Splenda, and mayonnaise. Pour over broccoli mixture and toss until well mixed. Refrigerate for at least two hours, but a whole day is better.
