Sultana Broccoli Salad

This salad is unusual but very tasty. The flavours improve with standing so be sure to make it at least two hours before you are going to serve it.

500g chopped fresh broccoli, stems and flowers
1/2 cup sultanas
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, unsalted
1/2 red onion, finely diced
2 tbsp bacon bits*
2 tbsp natural low fat yoghurt
2 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbsp sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 tbsp cider vinegar

Combine broccoli, raisins, sunflower seeds, onion and bacon bits. Mix yoghurt, mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together and add to broccoli mixture. Gently toss through salad to coat, being careful not to break the broccoli. Chill 2 hours before serving.

*Note: Bacon bits can be found with the herbs and spices at the supermarket. You can substitute 2 tablespoons of no fat, diced bacon that has been cooked until crisp.
