A Better Broccoli Salad

4 slices Center-cut Bacon
6 cups Small Broccoli Florets
3/4 cups Shredded Carrot
1/4 cups Chopped Red Onion
1/4 cups Salted Sunflower Seed Kernels
3/4 cups Reduced Sugar Craisins
1/4 cups Olive Oil Mayonnaise
1/4 cups Plain Fat-free Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar
2 Tablespoons Fat-free Buttermilk
1/2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lay the slices of bacon in a single layer. Put pan into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the bacon is crisp. Carefully remove pan from oven. Cool and crumble the bacon. Blanch the broccoli by dunking it in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Remove it from the oven and put it in an ice bath until chilled. Combine the blanched broccoli, bacon, carrots, onion, sunflower seeds and Craisins in a large bowl. Combine mayonnaise and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss well. Chill for 1 hour.
