I have had this recipe for so many years. I’m not even sure what cookbook it came from. I have seen this salad with many different additions, crumbled bacon, sunflower seeds or raisins. I have also seen this salad with cubed cheese instead of shredded. This is a great recipe to make your own by adding the flavours/textures your family likes.
Below is the full dressing recipe, but I have cut it in half. I seem to be the only one who eats this salad, so I don’t like to make a whole massive bowl of it. I just add enough broccoli, cheese and onions to last about 2 days. I also find that the dressing has a lot of sugar in it. To make it less sweet….add less sugar.
Fill a bag and a half of broccoli spears
Medium red onion, diced
Grated cheddar or marble cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp vinegar
1. Cut up broccoli and onions. Mix together with the grated cheese.
2. Mix together the sugar, mayonnaise and vinegar. Add dressing to the broccoli and let sit for about a day.
