BROCCOLI CRUNCH SALAD
1 medium fresh broccoli, chopped, about 1 pound *
1/2 pound bacon

Chop and fry the bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Blend the mayonnaise, vinegar and Splenda; combine all of the ingredients and chill before serving.

* You can substitute a 16 ounce bag of thawed and drained frozen broccoli florets. The carb savings are negligible with liquid Splenda.

This is a slight variation of my Broccoli Salad. I'd seen so many similar salad recipes that contained cheese so I decided to give it a try. It's actually quite good. Click the photo to see a close-up.
VARIATION: Save on carbs and calories by using only half the dressing mixture. You could cut back even more by using less cheese and bacon. The counts below are for half the dressing, but the full amount of cheese and bacon.
