Dietitian's Tip: 

Add sliced grapes or sunflower seeds for an even more delicious treat. Serve with a side of quinoa to provide a complete DASH diet meal. Quinoa is a high protein grain that supplies all the essential amino acids and is a rich source of iron, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, and protein.


1 cup raw broccoli, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1⁄2 cup raisins
1⁄4 cup onion, chopped
1 cup cooked ham, chicken or turkey
1⁄4 cup light mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup plain, non-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar


In a large bowl mix together broccoli, carrot, celery, raisins, onion and meat. Mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar and vinegar in a separate bowl. Add mayonnaise mixture to salad and mix well. Refrigerate leftovers within 2-3 hours.
