This colorful salad, dressed with a creamy sweet-and-sour dressing, is a delicious way to eat broccoli, one of Mother Nature’s most healthful foods. Broccoli, and particularly broccoli sprouts, is an excellent source of the cancer-fighting antioxidant sulforaphane.
Ingredients
  Broccoli crowns with stalk 2 Medium
  Grated carrots 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Raisins 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Green onions 3 , thinly sliced
  Dried cranberries 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Seasoned rice vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), seasoned
  Fat free mayonnaise/Low fat vegan mayonnaise 3 Tablespoon
  Sugar/Agave nectar 1 Tablespoon

  Broccoli sprouts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

Cut the broccoli crowns into bite-size florets. Peel the broccoli stems and cut them into bite-size pieces. Transfer to a salad bowl and add the carrots, raisins, green onions, and cranberries. Toss gently.

Combine the vinegar, mayonnaise, sugar, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over the broccoli mixture and toss until evenly distributed. Let stand for about 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to blend.

Top each serving with one-quarter of the broccoli sprouts if desired.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Broccoli Salad will keep for up to 3 days.
