Healthy Broccoli, Cranberry & Almond Salad

I like to blanch the broccoli for this recipe to remove a bit of the crunch ‘just plunge the florets into boiling water’but you can use raw broccoli ‘if you prefer. Usually this dish would contain mayo but I’ve used low-fat yogurt instead. Even the kids will love this salad’s sweet taste!
