  • 1 head broccoli diced into tiny pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced small (can add more)
  • 1/2 red onion diced small
  • 1 cup mild cheddar cheese diced into tiny cubes (can use less)
  • 8 oz bacon cooked & diced (I used low sodium turkey bacon)
  • 1 cup mayonaise I use Dukes
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • *optional ingredients* pasta, sunflower seeds, green bell pepper,


  • Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, ranch and parsley.
  • Add dressing by the spoonful to broccoli mixture just until coated. (you will have dressing left over)
  • Toss to combine.
  • Taste and adjust ingredients if needed.
  • Refrigerate or serve immediately.



This salad taste best served immediately when everything is still crunchy and fresh.
