From Betty's Soul Food Collection... This side salad rocks with sweet and spicy flavors that blend broccoli, mango, jazzed-up pecans and a citrusy dressing into an amazing taste sensation.
to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
cup pecan halves, broken into coarse pieces
containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free orange crème yogurt
cup light mayonnaise
tablespoon cider vinegar
cups fresh broccoli florets and cut-up stems (1 small bunch)
ripe medium mangoes, peeled, seed removed and diced (1 1/2 cups)
cup finely chopped red onion
Lightly spray 8-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add sugar and ground red pepper; mix well. Stir in pecans. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar mixture is melted and pecans are coated. Remove from heat; set aside to cool.
In small bowl, mix dressing ingredients with wire whisk until smooth. In large bowl, mix salad ingredients.
Add dressing to salad; toss gently to mix. Just before serving, stir in pecans. Cover and refrigerate any remaining salad.
Need help cutting a mango? Score the skin lengthwise into fourths with a knife, and peel like a banana. Cut the peeled mango lengthwise close to both sides of the seed, then dice.
