Strawberry Broccoli Salad

Strawberry Broccoli Salad - this unexpected combination makes for the perfect summertime salad and includes broccoli florets, cojack cheese, sliced strawberries, and almonds all tossed in a delicious dressing.

Sometimes I am asked to do something that is hard for me to do…. like write a gushing post about broccoli. Its not a secret that broccoli and I are not friends. But I understand that, above the age of 8, I am in the minority. So, I’ve gathered everyone else’s input on this recipe and can give you a true, non-biased, opinion from those that actually tried it. 🙂

The consensus? It’s awesome!

Today’s Strawberry Broccoli Salad was a breeze to throw together and is perfect for the summer. In all honestly, I did try a few strawberries and cheese chunks, and can attest to the delicious dressing each piece is coated with. If you’re a normal person and like broccoli, my sources tell me that you should definitely try this recipe. I will admit that I do love asparagus and may try that instead of broccoli next time. I think it would be great with the cheese, strawberries and delicious dressing. Give this broccoli salad recipe a go yourself and let me know what you think. Our family loved it and has already made plans to make it again!
