1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 cup fat-free mayonnaise dressing
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1½ pounds broccoli florets, chopped
¼ cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup, packed, seedless raisins
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (turkey bacon may be substituted)
Place the oven rack in the middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.
Place chopped pecans in single layer on a shallow pan and bake 6-8 minutes, or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the oven; cool to room temperature.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar together until combined; add broccoli, onion and raisins, gently stir and fold to coat. Cover and chill 2 hours. Sprinkle with bacon and pecans just before serving.
Cook’s notes: Using a sugar substitute, such as Stevia, cuts out 247 calories. Dried cranberries may be substituted for the raisins.
