Yum, I just had this salad yesterday, and wondered if there was a skinny recipe for it.

Good thing I found this website.

What is the 'light cream'?

And, yes, this does sound delicious! Are there any carbs per serving, and what is an average serving?

Thanks!

In the dairy section of the grocery store there is heavy cream, whipping cream (which is like heavy cream) half and half, light cream. You can use heavy cream and just water it down if you don't have the light.

The carbs come from the veggies so you'll need to figure out if you eat a cup, thats a cup of broccoli carbs + onion. I did figure out the carb count once, let me see if I can find it again :)

Okay I found an old post.... here goes:

As far as carb count, that would depend on how much broccoli you use (eat) and how much splenda and onion you put in it. Just measure and count, then portion it out. If I remember correctly, it was like 4 g per serving, approximately (but worth every bite imho lol).

Approx Carb #'s:
1 Cup of Broccoli = 2.89 g carbs (flowers)
1/4 Cup of Onion = 2.8 g carbs (approx, all sites are different for some reason).
6 - 8 Splenda Packets = 6 - 8 g carbs
Light Cream = 1 g per oz

So depending on the amount of broccoli you use the # will be different. Some heads of broccoli are HUGE while others are small.

HOPE THIS HELPS !!

OMG, this is my all time favorite salad that my mom makes. Now I can just tell her to make it with Splenda and I can still have it!

I bet sliced almond on top would be great too. I'm glad you all like it.
