I love that strawberries are coming into season.  I bought a big ‘ole thing at Costco last week and I was ready to put those babies to good use!  I especially love using fresh strawberries in salads.  They add such a sweet and yummy texture.

These strawberries in this broccoli salad were uh-mazing!  After I made this Broccoli Apple Salad I fell in love with fruit in broccoli salads.

I love how you are getting the best of both worlds with this salad.  Fruit and veggies packed inside! Then you add some diced red onions, almonds, and feta cheese.   Perfection!

      The creamy strawberry broccoli salad is superb. I have never posted a comment on a recipe before but this one warrants kudos. After making it, I put the recipe in my favorite recipe box because I will be making it again and again.

    Someone brought this dish to a potluck, and I absolutely HAD to have the recipe. I would never have thought to put strawberries and broccoli together, but it totally works. And I LOVE the dressing.
