This is a quick, low calorie and healthy salad that can be made ahead and packed for a picnic. Lower the calories and carbs by substituting a low fat Vinaigrette Dressing.

Ingredients

2 cups broccoli, fresh, cut into small florets

1/4 cup salad dressing, balsamic vinaigrette, low fat

1/4 onion(s), red, chopped

2 ounce(s) cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk

1 cup tomato(es), grape or cherry, halved

1 tablespoons nuts, pine nuts

Preparation

Remove the large stem from the broccoli and cut florets into bite sized pieces. Place 4 cups of water in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Steam broccoli in the boiling water for about 1 minute. Remove broccoli and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and maintain the bright green color. Drain well. For the dressing, whisk the oil, vinegar, honey and Dijon together in a small bowl. Cut cheese into bite size pieces, and place in a salad bowl with tomatoes, onions and broccoli. Pour the dressing over the broccoli and toss well. Garnish with toasted pine nuts and serve.
