Skinny Broccoli Salad packed with fresh broccoli, grapes, sunflower, and dried cranberries makes a crunchy, delicious, and healthy side dish.

Don’t you hate it when something that should be healthy, like a broccoli salad, gets weighed down with the addition of heavy dressing or fatty meats? I know I do. In fact, so many broccoli salads include those ingredients that, for a long time, I didn’t even think I liked broccoli salads.

This Skinny Broccoli Salad recipe completely changed my mind. The inspiration for this salad came from a recipe I saw on Cooking Light’s website. I reduced the sugar by swapping a half cup of craisins in for the full cup of raisins originally called for, and cut the amount of sugar in the dressing too.

The grapes, celery, and sunflower seeds compliment the broccoli and salty sweet dressing so perfectly. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite salads, and it goes really well served alongside any meat or fish entree. What’s more, this incredible healthy salad will be a favorite at summer potlucks and parties.

The salad is great as-is, but feel free to make it your own by adding some lightly toasted slivered almonds or a sprinkling of bacon. You’re going to love it!
