Broccoli Cauliflower Carrot Salad with Greek Yogurt Honey Dressing Recipe

Broccoli Cauliflower Carrot Salad

This Broccoli Cauliflower Carrot Salad with Greek Yogurt Honey Dressing is perfect for Spring and would be a nice addition to any Easter meal. The first time I had Broccoli Salad I was surprised at how good it was. It was crunchy, sweet and tangy and just plain fun to eat. The only thing is the dressing is typically made with lots of mayonnaise, which doesn't have a lot of nutritional value and is high in fat.
