1⁄2 cup raisins

1⁄4 cup plain, non-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar
In a large bowl mix together broccoli, carrot, celery, raisins, onion and meat. Mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar and vinegar in a separate bowl. Add mayonnaise mixture to salad and mix well. Refrigerate leftovers within 2-3 hours.
