  • 8 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 6 ounces sharp cheddar, cut into small cubes
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced almonds
  • 8 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar


  • Add the broccoli, cheddar, onion, almonds, and bacon to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the mayo, sour cream, ranch seasoning, and vinegar to a small mixing bowl and stir well.
  • Pour the dressing over the broccoli salad and stir well to coat.
  • Serve immediately.


If you’ll be serving this recipe at a later time, store the bacon separately so it doesn't become soggy. Top with bacon just before serving.
This recipe lasts for up to 4 days in the fridge, though the broccoli does become softer the longer it sits.
