Southern Broccoli Tomato Salad

We're betting even your most finicky veggie eaters will be tempted to give our delicious Southern Broccoli Tomato Salad a try. This fresh-tasting colorful, healthy summer salad is sure to be a highlight whenever you serve it. Try adding almonds, raisins or sunflower seeds to this simple broccoli salad for some extra variety!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 large head broccoli, cut into 1/2-inch florets
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, tomatoes, onion, cheese, and bacon.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss until vegetables are evenly coated. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

 

Notes
  • For extra crispy bacon, try cooking it in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The trick is to place it in a cool oven and then pre-heat!

  • To add variety to this simple broccoli salad, add some almonds, raisins, or sunflower seeds!

Love this, easy to make,

This was very good Its almost, like adish that Ihave made like it

This recipe is the"BOMB". I made for my daughter to take to work and everyone wants the recipe. They loved it. I'll be making it quite often.

I made this for a family get together and it was a hit! I did use red wine vinegar because that's all I had in the house and splenda because I'm diabetic, but it would be great as is too.

Everybody wants me to make this all the time. I use red wine vinegar I think its better.

This salad is great!!! I've fixed it several times and everyone wants the recipe. Makes a really nice summer salad. You could even add chicken to this for a little different twist. Haven't tried that yet, but think I will the next time I fix it.

This dish is delicious. I should of doubled the recipe the first time. Now I have to make more.

I absolutely cannot wait to try this! I have a family reunion in June and this is what I'm taking! The addition of the sunflower seeds and craisins sounds good too, I think I'll do it that way!

Awesome! I added sunflower kernels and a palmful of craisins. Also used shredded cheese.

Are we talking raw broccoli, or par-boiled, or what?

Broccoli in a salad is always raw. Remember to wash the head of fresh broccoli in salted water to remove any stray bugs or dirt and sand.

cool...

love his food and cookin it

LOVE IT!!!!
