Cranberry Almond Broccoli Salad

More often than not, broccoli salad is drowning in a thick dressing with 1/2 pound of bacon mixed in, making it more about the dressing and bacon than about the actual broccoli. This recipe uses Greek yogurt to keep the calories in check. We opted for a natural, uncured bacon (a bit less of it) and lower-sugar dried cranberries to pack a subtle punch of tart. And, perhaps the best part about this salad is that the longer it sits, the better it gets.  Enjoy!
