Everyone has their "go to" dish when it comes to potluck or barbeques and this broccoli salad is mine. When I attend such events I always like to bring something that I know falls within my diet parameters, and if there's absolutely nothing else figure friendly on the table, I know I can be content with a bowl of broccoli salad and some Triscuits.
6-8 cups of broccoli florets
1/2 sweet onion, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 can of sliced water chestnuts
1/3 cup dried cranberries
Place all of the above in a large salad bowl.
Combine 1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise, 1/3 cup Splenda, and 1 Tablespoon white vinegar. Stir into salad with vegetables.
Microwave 3 strips turkey bacon until crisp. Crumble bacon and toss with salad just before serving.
