  • Broccoli Florets: Fresh, washed broccoli is best.
  • Strawberries: Cut into fourths for better eating and mixture.
  • Almonds: I used sliced almonds.
  • Feta Cheese: Adds flavor and soft, chewy addition to the broccoli salad.
  • Red Onion: This is a mild onion that adds a crispy crunch to every bite.

How to Make Broccoli Salad with Strawberries

This salad gets rave reviews every single time I make it. It is lightened up so you can still enjoy a flavorful and healthy salad that is sure to be a hit! In a large bowl combine broccoli, strawberries, sliced almonds, feta cheese, and red onion. It is that simple!

Ingredients for the Creamy Dressing in the Broccoli Salad

This dressing is my go-to for all broccoli salads. It is perfect to whisk together and make when you need a side dish fast. This strawberry broccoli salad is a side dish that everyone will be raving about!

  • Mayonnaise: I like to use lite mayonnaise since I add sugar.
  • Greek Yogurt: Low-fat Greek yogurt seems to work well and saves on calories.
  • Lemon Juice: This can be from squeezing a lemon or from lemon juice.
  • Sugar: Adds sweetness to the dressing.
  • Salt and Pepper: Just a pinch!
  • Poppyseeds: A great topping and adds a mild flavor.

How Do you Make the Creamy Dressing?

Whisk together mayonnaise, greek yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, salt, pepper, and poppyseeds. It is so simple to make and stirs together perfectly! This broccoli salad with strawberries is ready to go in no time.

Can you Make this Salad Ahead of Time?

Yes! This salad is a great salad to make ahead of time. Leave in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days prior to serving. Keep cool and out of the heat when being served. The mayonnaise and greek yogurt will spoil if it gets too hot.
