This healthy broccoli salad is a refreshing new twist on the broccoli-and-bacon picnic standard that sometimes gets drenched in mayonnaise dressing. Here, Greek yogurt and whole grain Dijon mustard stand in for globs of mayo.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes. Add yogurt, mayonnaise, and tarragon; stir with a whisk.

Step 2

With processor on, add broccoli through the food chute of a food processor fitted with the slicer attachment. Transfer broccoli to a bowl. Add juice to bowl of food processor. Repeat procedure with apples; add apples to bowl with broccoli.

Step 3

Combine dressing and broccoli mixture; toss well to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Stir in bacon just before serving.

This was a wonderful side dish for my grilled beef tenderloin. You must give it the full three hours in the refrigerator to allow these flavors to combine.
