Skinny Broccoli Salad: This recipe has to be one of the easiest salad recipes to make, and it is always a huge hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. We lighten it up by using a reduced-calorie ranch dressing, and make sure not to add too much. We recommend you use reduced-fat cheese, but that’s optional. Add extra veggies to the salad, or other toppings, to make this recipe your own. Get the recipe here.
