Drop-in Salad Recipe

When my husband and I were invited to a barbecue, I threw together this broccoli salad. I tossed in whatever I had in the fridge, and the crunchy colorful combination that resulted was a hit. It is a nice change from lettuce salads.

  • 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cheddar cheese

  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinaigrette or vinaigrette of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

"Everyone in our family loves this salad! I like to use 2% sharp cheddar cheese and sometimes sub green onion if I don't have the red on-hand. Our favorite dressing is light raspberry vinaigarette. Especially great in the summer!"
