Broccoli Cheese Tomato Salad Recipe– loaded with broccoli florets, tomatoes, carrots and Colby Jack cheese in a creamy homemade dressing. This is the perfect salad to serve at parties or potlucks.

Simple recipe for broccoli cheese tomato salad with carrots, cheese, and onions.

The combination of raw broccoli florets with tomatoes, carrots and Colby Jack cheese is wonderful.  Although the cubed cheese is so unexpected in a broccoli salad, it gives it a unique taste. My favorite part of the salad will have to be the garlic creamy dressing. It takes the salad to a whole new level.

How to make Broccoli Tomato Salad-

  • First, cut broccoli into small florets.
  • Slice cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Finely cube the red onion.
  • Julienne the carrot with this SLICER.
  • Cube the block of Colby Jack cheese.
  • Combine the ingredients for the dressing.
  • Mix all of the ingredients.
  • ENJOY!

    Hi Valya! How many days ahead can you make this salad? And should I put the dressing on right before serving it? Or is it okay to put the dressing on and keep it in fridge over-night?

      Tanya,
      I make mine the day before. I prepare the dressing as well and just put it on top of salad and mix before serving. Two days will work too. Just don’t mix it.. Dressing is simple so you make it the day of too.. :):) Enjoy…:^)
