I’ve never been a fan of mayo, hence this no mayo broccoli salad. (And this super popular Broccoli Casserole from Scratch.) So whenever there’s a recipe that’s typically made with mayo, I swap it out for one of my very favorite things, Greek yogurt. The yogurt works perfectly in this salad, and makes for a creamy yet healthy dressing to coat the crunchy broccoli and other yummies in this salad!

Apple is a pretty common ingredient in broccoli salad, but I also added blueberries to mine. I was going for a red, white, and blue… and green color scheme for 4th of July. 😉

It works, don’t you think?

Besides the broccoli, apple, and blueberries, this salad is full of dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, and red onion. Everything is tossed in a creamy Greek yogurt poppy seed dressing, made with just 5 ingredients. Both the salad and dressing come together in just minutes. This No Mayo Broccoli Salad with Apple and Blueberries is one of the easiest side dishes you can make and it’s full of fresh, real ingredients!

I made a big bowl of this broccoli salad for Brad and I even though we weren’t going to a BBQ or party. That was ok, though, because the leftovers made for some delicious lunches for the next few days!
