Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

60 minutes


6 servings


4 cups broccoli florets, cut small

3 tablespoons red onion, diced

½ cup red seedless grapes, sliced in half

3 tablespoons sliced almonds

3 slices turkey bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled

½ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1½ tablespoons honey

1/8 teaspoon celery seed

Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Make the dressing: combine the Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, honey, celery seed, salt and pepper. Whisk together. If too thick for a dressing, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency is reached. It should be a creamier dressing. Adjust sweetness and seasoning as needed.
  2. Toss the broccoli, red onion and grapes together. Pour dressing over top and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving if possible.
  3. When ready to serve, top with almonds and bacon. Stir to combine.
