I added a touch of california chili powder to the dressing, not much--just enough to give it the flavor of chili powder with a small hint of heat. The combination of ingredients in this salad is outstanding. Just the dressing alone blew me away. I almost licked the bowl. So so so very good.



DELICIOUS and so refreshing! The dressing really makes this stand out from the rest...LOVED the slightly sweet, tanginess of the dressing w/ the creaminess of the cheese and the crunch of the broccoli. All of the veggies made a great combination of flavors together and the dressing just put it over the top. This was so light and fresh tasting, and, this is gonna sound corny, but I really felt good eating it! Hubby already called the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, so that's saying a lot, lol. I have a confession though...I made this just as written, but planned to add the romaine at the last minute and...I totally forgot to add it, but it was wonderful, so it worked out anyway. Make this early in the day to allow the flavors to blend well...I shook mine around in the container every so often to keep the veggies coated. Sherri, Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe that is def gonna be a summer salad staple for us! :)



I’m delighted to be one of the first to make and review Sherri’s recently published recipe! First let me tell you, we loved this!! We like broccoli in this house, so as soon as I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. I did make a few adjustments based on personal preference and ingredients on hand. I increased the honey just a bit and reduced the cumin, but not by much. I used white button mushrooms. And because I had leaf lettuce on hand, and it’s not as sturdy as romaine, I tossed it in just before serving. I also had to use regular sharp cheddar, rather than white cheddar. This was light and refreshing and definitely not your typical broccoli salad. And just in time for those summer cookouts! Thank you Sherry and my broccoli loving hubby thanks you too!
