Clean-Eating Broccoli Salad

The weather is warming up and with that comes picnics, family get-togethers, parties, and potlucks. This the perfect dish to take to all the above. The original recipe for this salad calls for peanuts and a dump truck full of sugar. To clean up this recipe, I've replaced the sugar with a little bit of pure maple syrup, and since I no longer eat legumes, I've found that raw sunflower seeds are the perfect substitute for peanuts. 

Clean-Eating Broccoli Salad

4 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup raisins
2 heaping tablespoons sunflower seeds
4 pieces of bacon, cooked crispy and diced
2 scallions, diced
1 cup mayonnaise 
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup*

In a large bowl, combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, bacon, and scallions together. In a small bowl mix together the mayo and syrup to make a dressing. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss to coat.
