Mr Food Broccoli Tomato Salad with Mayonnaise Dressing

mr food salad with broccoli

Mr Food broccoli tomato salad is the last salad from my broccoli salad collection. I have showed you already several pretty good variations of this well established and absolutely amazing combination of ingredients. One of my favorites are the broccoli raisin salad again from Mr Food and the Pioneer Woman broccoli salad with bacon and carrots. Why? Because first of all I love dried fruit in salads (also the classic broccoli salad from Chef Julie Yoon is pretty good – with dried cranberries) and secondly I love broccoli, mixed with carrots. But of course it all depends on your personal taste, so you can just go the broccoli salads category and choose the best salad for your taste: there are some with roasted nuts, some with different types of cheese, etc.

Mr Food broccoli tomato salad is the very basic option of the Broccoli Bacon Cheese Salad

Although there are many variations of this salad, the very main ingredients are no more than five: broccoli, red onion, bacon, cheese, mayonnaise. Because tomatoes are very often included to this combination, we could say this particular broccoli salad shows the very basics. You could replace the sugar with honey to make the dressing a little bit healthier. But have in mind, that it has to be real honey…

One more thing: don’t try to replace the bacon with chicken pieces. Not that chicken doesn’t match broccoli and mayonnaise, but bacon and broccoli are proven to taste best of all other meat-broccoli combinations. If the bacon is grilled, smoked or baked to crispiness, then you got it!

Mr Food broccoli tomato salad is suitable for big celebrations, because it doesn’t appear to be a well known and “boring” salad. You could definitely surprise your guest with this explosion of tastes. Of course you could prepare it also on a lazy Sunday afternoon, when you want to spent some time with yourself or with your family – just to have something delicious on the table.

Avoca broccoli salad recipe from Bibliocook

avoca broccoli salad recipe

It is time for some beautiful and delicious layers, what do you say? ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe the most good looking salads in the world are those with layers, because theyย achieve the effect of the rainbow. Each ingredient adds a color stripe to the plate and together all the ingredients form an explosion of “organised” colors. That is why they appear to look so stunning. One more cool thing about salads with layers is that you can see very easily the ingredients. When they are all mixed up, you get kind of confused about what is it there in the salad. So, layer salads really rock!

I am going to give you a very good example for such a salad. The recipe comes from a website, called Bibliocook, the author is Caroline. She shows something delicious, easy to make and simply amazing to us, the readers: avoca broccoli salad recipe. Did you get hungry?

The salad goes with an interesting dressing, but I would say, that even if you skip the dressing and simplify the salad recipe even more, still you will get an the end a pretty good broccoli salad. Why? Because the combination of these ingredients alone is proven to taste delicious. I am talking about spinach, avocado, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese… and roasted hazelnuts. Imagine those things in a big bowl. Isn’t it perfect?

The avoca broccoli salad recipe surprises me with:

  1. The way Caroline made the dressing. Usually when we make a dressing, we take a bowl, add the dressing ingredients there and stir. But here there is this really cool idea: just take a jar, fill it up with the ingredients and shake. I think you mix the flavors much better and it is very comfortable. Also if you don’t want to use the whole dressing, you just close the jar, put it in the fridge and use it later. Very clever.
  2. There is feta cheese and no Cheddar cheese in the salad. Everywhere I search for broccoli salads, I see the combination of broccoli and Cheddar cheese. Not that this a bad thing, but I really needed to get inspired with some other type of cheese. Feta matches more than perfectly the avocado, there just like a love couple. ๐Ÿ™‚ And adding those roasted hazelnuts…I am out of words now…

Here is the original page of the avoca broccoli salad recipe, if you are interested to see the details. Take a look at the summary I just made, if you don’t want to go in details and just need the basic info.

Thanks again for letting me inspire you with my salad inspirations! See you soon. ๐Ÿ™‚


Neelys broccoli salad with bacon and cheese

neelys broccoli salad with bacon

I think one of the most proved and established salad combinations is:

  • broccoli
  • bacon
  • red onion
  • mayonnaise

I have noticed it while I was searching for new broccoli salad ideas. Why is this combination so popular? Really…Why don’t they mix broccoli with chicken pieces for example? Why is the bacon? And why do they always add red and not for example green onion? And why the mayonnaise dressing? Why not soy sauce?

So many questions and one answer. Why? Because it tastes GREAT. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you try this heavenly mix you will understand why it is red onion, why it is mayonnaise…I really advise you to stick with these ingredients in order to achieve exactly this explosion of flavors. The taste is so specific and unforgettable, it lasts in your mouth, not just the taste, but the whole experience. You want to eat an unforgettable salad? THIS is the salad.

I guess I already showed you some variations of broccoli bacon Cheddar cheese salad. Here is another similar recipe, but still not the same. Actually there are lots of differences in the variations. The point is to keep the basics (the main, very important ingredients, which I listed above) and then to play with the details. For example, here is Neelys broccoli salad with bacon and Cheddar cheese. Instead of yogurt they use sour cream in the dressing. They also add some celery seeds, which give the salad a delicate extra flavor.

You could add lots of things to Neelys broccoli salad. If you like it like that, take the recipe right away. See the summary I made or go directly to the original page, where you can see also a video. But if you want to challenge your creativity and make your very own and unique masterpiece, then you need to inspire yourself and add some ingredients that you consider as original and interesting. I am going to give you one idea, you could also think of creative salad ingredients:

Why don’t you add some shredded, baked sweet potato to the salad? After you whisk everything together, you just sprinkle some of the shredded red potato on top. It will look very pretty and will add a sweet flavor to the broccoli.

That was my idea. I have tried adding this to Neelys broccoli salad and the result was fantastic. So, have fun in the kitchen and write in the comment below, what happened, did you enjoy the process? ๐Ÿ™‚

Mr Food always surprises me with genial ideas for salads. He just has this gift to inspire you within seconds. Maybe because of the videos he shows. Just in several minutes you get to know the particular salad so well, that you don’t need to read, print or remember the recipe.

Like this broccoli cheese salad for example. Mr Food explains everything in the video below. Which are the ingredients? You just see them in the bowl: fresh broccoli, red onion, black olives, cherry tomatoes, two kinds of cheese and dressing. You could also some bacon, but this is optional.

The dressing for the broccoli cheese salad from Mr Food is really unique. Mayonnaise and yogurt, until here nothing extraordinary, right? But then come the honey and garlic powder. I have never tried honey with mayonnaise, I’ve just never come to such a crazy idea. Actually it is logical, that mayonnaise matches honey, because mayonnaise matches yogurt and yogurt matches honey. ๐Ÿ™‚

The broccoli cheese salad from Mr Food is suitable for big tables and celebrations. Because of its original appearance and unique flavor combinations it is really good for those occasions, when you want to surprise your guests and make them feel really special for sitting around your table.

Go to the original page of this recipe, if you want to see all the details. I am showing you the summary of the broccoli cheese salad from Mr Food.

Here are couple of my ideas for this salad, I really hope you like them:

  • You could add some chopped baked potatoes to the salad.
  • You could add some mustard to the mayonnaise yogurt dressing.
  • You could whisk the salad with some baked sunflower seeds.

Have you tried this salad? Write down in the comments your experience, what to you think matches the salad and what not? Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
