Healthier Broccoli Salad

This healthier broccoli salad tastes just like you remember–only it uses lighter ingredients overall and way less mayo. Foreman grill up the turkey bacon ahead of time and that will make the assembly that much easier. With the extra protein from the yogurt, along with the light cheese, bacon, and peanuts you could even make this broccoli salad a hunger satisfying lunch salad on its own. The mix of textures is a delight and the dressing is way low in sugar, which will make it a star in any diabetes cookbook.
