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-

  • Cut the broccoli into small florets.
  • Slice the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Finely chop the red onion.
  • Julienne the carrot with this SLICER.
  • Cube the block of Colby Jack cheese.
  • Combine the ingredients for the dressing.
  • Mix all the salad ingredients in a bowl.
  • Enjoy.

Can Broccoli Salad be made in advance?

This Broccoli Salad can be made in advance and refrigerated until you’re ready to serve it.

TIP: This salad does not get soggy quickly, it’s great to keep leftovers refrigerated and enjoy the salad for several days.
