I got this recipe off of the Splenda website and recently brought it to a family reunion as an alternative to all the high fat dishes that abound at our get-togethers. It went over with flying colors and no one could even tell that I used Splenda instead of sugar! The dressing is so light that you can't see it, but it is packed with flavor so you will definitely taste it!
- 4 cups broccoli florets or 4 cups Broccolini
- 1⁄4 cup red onion, minced
- 2 tablespoons splenda artificial sweetener, Granulated
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, roasted and salted
- 3 tablespoons seedless raisins
- Discard broccoli stems and finely chop florets or broccolini. Set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the Splenda, vinegar and mayonnaise toghether until it is an even, smooth consistency. Stir in the broccoli and remaining ingredients. Toss until coated. Chill until ready to serve.
I'm about to make this but will use a tiny bit of stevia for the sugar-free sweetener. I won't go near Splenda since I read about how it affects the brain and body. You might look into it too. Thanks to you for posting!
Wonderful recipe. I am not a fan of using products (splenda) that contain aspartame, so I use either honey, stevia or truvia, in place of the splenda.
This is a really wonderful (and healthy) salad. The dressing reminded me of the dressing my mother makes for wilted letuuce. This time I left out sunflower seeds (because e I didnt' have any). Next time, I use a strip or two of bacon instead of sunflower seeds.
