Broccoli-Pasta-Cheddar Salad

"This salad is very similar to the deli salad you can buy at Walmart with rotini pasta, cheddar cheese, broccoli, and a yummy sweet-tangy dressing."

    I loved it. But I putted ham in it. And next time I will make it a little less sweet.

    I haven't tried to make it yet, but if turns out to taste like walmart or Dillons I will be satisfied. But, I may try adding some kind of meat some time.

    I have not made this recipe yet but I was thinking if by adding 1 1/2 Cups of diced or cubed cooked chicken or maybe ham and 1 1/2-2 Cups cooked, crumbled bacon to this recipe, the different tastes combined would might be more enjoyable.

    Delish!!!! Tastes exactly like the salad I used to get at WalMart. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Absolutely delicious. I was searching for the recipe for the broccoli cheddar cold salad some friends picked up at Cub grocery store. THIS was it! I substituted plain Old Home brand yogurt for the mayo and left out the vinegar and it was just as good. Mmm..... I'm making it again this week!


Hi! I'm married, and trying to start a family. I'm going back to FT work after a year basically off. We are HUGE hockey fanatics, and love going to all the home WHL league games. I've always enjoyed cooking. When I was in HS, my dad owned a milk route, and worked from 2 am-4 pm. When I got home from school, my mom did the book work, and I cooked. She would give instructions and suggestions while doing her work, and eventually, I just started doing things on my own and experimenting. I love making home made things. I spent a lot of my life in the country, in an agricultural area. I'm frequently being given fruits and veggies. To make use of these, I've learned to can applesauce, pickled asparagus, jam, Spaghetti sauce, etc. We usually plant some tomato plants in the summer, and this year also planted a few other veggies. Hopefully next year we'll plant even more! :)
