Healthy Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

I think it is fun to change favorite recipes that we use to eat into a healthier version. This is a recipe I used to make all the time. So in this recipe the changes I made were, I took out the miracle whip and sugar and replaced them with honey and yogurt. Then fruit which added gave it a natural sweetness too. I was happy with the end result.

3 C chopped up broccoli
1 head of cauliflower chopped up
1/8 C diced purple onion
4 apples diced small pieces (I used small pink lady)
1/2 C currants or raisins 
1 6 oz pkg bacon bits*optional
3/4 C mozzarella cheese
1/2 C sunflower seeds

3/4 C plain yogurt
1 tsp Worcestershire * optional (for savory flavor)
1 T mustard (wet)* optional
2 to 3 T honey (more if you want added sweetness)

1. Toss the vegetables, fruit, *bacon, cheese and seeds in a bowl. Set a side
2. In a small bowl mix all the ingredients for the dressing. Pour on to the salad. (If you want more dressing you can increase the measurements.) Stir until all combined.
3. Serve right away you can garnish with more currants or cheese if desired. You can also cover the salad and let it chill. Make sure you stir before serving to mix the dressing that settles at the bottom.
