Crunchy broccoli salad

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Crunchy broccoli salad

1 bunch fresh broccoli (approximately 1 pound)
5 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
5 strips turkey bacon, crisply cooked then crumbled
1/3 cup light mayonnaise (not salad-dressing-type mayonnaise)
1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise (not salad-dressing-type mayonnaise)
4 packets acesulfame-K sweetener (such as Sweet One)
2 tablespoons white vinegar

Remove stalks from broccoli and discard. Cut broccoli crowns into small florets. In a bowl, combine broccoli florets, green onions, cheese, and crumbled bacon. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together light mayonnaise, fat-free mayonnaise, sweetener, and vinegar. Pour over broccoli mixture and toss well to coat. Serve immediately.
