I was looking for a recipe to take to Easter dinner, but I wanted to take something healthy. It came to me that it would be very easy to make a healthy broccoli salad. I went on a search where someone replaced the mayonnaise with greek yogurt. But I was surprised to not find any great recipes also surprised to find how the proportions of a broccoli salad very greatly!

I quickly went about creating my own recipe. You may wonder why I call this a savory broccoli salad. Many of the recipes I read used sugar in the recipe, but I wanted to cut this out to save on the calories. If you really really like a sweet broccoli salad you can either add sugar or add a little stevia to the recipe.
