Ingredients

FOR THE BROCCOLI SALAD

  • 4 cups broccoli florets*

  • 2 cups low fat cubed cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced

FOR THE CREAMY DRESSING

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Instructions 

  • In a large salad bowl combine broccoli florets, chopped bacon, diced chicken, cubed cheese, cherry tomatoes, and onions; set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar; whisk until thoroughly incorporated. Taste and adjust accordingly.
  • Add dressing to the broccoli salad; toss gently.
  • Cover the salad and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Notes

*If you don’t like raw broccoli, you can put the florets in a small amount of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes, covered. Then, rinse the broccoli under cold water so to stop them from further cooking.
