My husband’s FAVORITE! This Layered Broccoli Salad is loaded with cheddar cheese, raisins, cranberries, bacon and walnuts and served with a sweet and tangy dressing!

I know, I know.

It’s broccoli. And it’s a salad. I understand that they are two things you don’t see much of over here, not because we don’t eat them in this house but because I generally don’t eat them.

See, the hubs and kids love broccoli and salad. It’s always been important to me that my kids have great eating habits, and love their fruits and veggies.

Well, mission accomplished. I actually often will leave the veggies off of the dinner table because if I put them on at the beginning, they will not eat anything else! When they’ve eaten some of what has been prepared, then I bring out the fresh veggies for dessert.

I have had the pleasure to photograph some recipes for Bothwell Cheese: they produce insanely delicious cheese right here in Manitoba. I asked if I could share a few of our favorites that we’ve made from their web site, and they generously agreed!

So, here I am. And I had to share this Layered Broccoli Salad because my husband said it was the best broccoli salad he’s ever had. It’s just sweet enough, and loaded with allllllll kinds of good things, including a good dose of Bothwell Cheese.

    Ashley….you posted not only a salad recipe, but a recipe using greens. I’m so proud! Ha!! This broccoli salad looks yummy! I actually just started liking broccoli only a few years ago, so I know I’ll love this recipe. Glad the hubby and girls loved this too! 🙂

  2. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! I love a good broccoli salad and this one sounds really good! I must admit I could eat just this for a meal! 🙂

  3. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    You posted a salad recipe, Ashley! Yay! 🙂 I have to admit that I love broccoli, but I don’t like broccoli salads. But, I do love every ingredient in here. Maybe I just haven’t found the right one! I love that you used greek yogurt and mayo in here. I would definitely give this a try, and I know my husband would devour this in no time!

      Haha! Thanks Gayle! I had to share it because of my husband’s reaction — I knew it was a good one! I think that’s part of the reason the family loved this one so much — there’s not much mayo and it’s not as thick and heavy as most! Bothwell Cheese definitely knows what they’re doing 🙂

    Ashley – It was just a few months ago that I tried broccoli salad for the first time. I fell in love. This is going to be a go-to recipe for me this summer. Thank you for the beautiful photos as well. 🙂

      My tastes are definitely expanding as I experiment more and more with recipes for the blog — maybe this is what I needed all along. A good excuse to try it!
