i adjusted this for lc purposes and added chicken to make it a bit more fat/prot balanced.

5 cups slightly steamed broccoli flowerets
4 TBL. toasted pine nuts
3 oz. cooked bacon (crispy & crumbled)
2 stalks celery
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1lb. chicken, in bite sized pieces.

1 cup mayo
4 TBL. vinegar
3 TBS. splenda

mix mayo, vinegar and splenda together, pour over first six items. mix together, and chill for at least 2 hours. stir well and serve.

Looks like something my mom has been making for years. The combo of bacon and broccoli is so yum E. :yum: Just curious, looks like you plugged that into fitday, do you have the fiber count as well? (Many of us subtract fiber from carbs)

hi nat. sorry about the omission. the fiber per serving is 3.5. my ex-mother in law started me on this and whenever i went to pot lucks, i made it sans the chicken, sugar instead of splenda, and with raisins. i like it better this way, and i cut down on the amount of sweetner than the orig.
