Broccoli Hater's Broccoli Salad from Chef Maki's Kitchen

Broccoli Salad
Mix together:
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2-3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt (homemade crockpot yogurt here)
2-3 TBS sugar
4 Broccoli stalks & flowers, in small, bite size pieces
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 -2 cups red grapes, halved (or not)
1/2 pkg turkey bacon, cut in small pieces (no need to cook if package says it is already fully cooked)
1 cup shredded carrots
Mix it around to coat. Serve. Yum! Even my broccoli haters like this salad. This salad gives you a flavor packed treat in each delicious bite!
In the picture, you see no red grapes. This is because I had none this go around, so I substituted raisins. It looks prettier with the red grapes. {My picture isn't too pretty anyway since I took it too close up, but you get the general idea.} I also subbed green onions and yellow onion for the red onion, for the same reason. You can make several variations and still have a yummy salad.

Looks good. My aunt makes this for family get togethers sometimes.
