Tomato Broccoli Salad

I found this recipe over 25 years ago. I made a few changes to it and our family has enjoyed it ever since. The colorful combination is perfect for the holidays, but it's equally nice at a summer picnic. —Helen Meadows of Trout Creek, Montana

    Delicious! I deviated from the recipe in that I used red onion along with the green onion and used bottled ranch dressing instead of making the one in the recipe. I would make this again!
