This Buffalo Broccoli Salad is a fun, spicy twist on the classic broccoli salad! It’s made with a combination of broccoli, red onions, bacon, blue cheese, cheddar cheese and buffalo dressing!



6 cups broccoli florets (about 2 heads of broccoli)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup crumbled bacon*
1/3 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup ranch or blue cheese dressing
1/2 cup buffalo sauce
1 tbsp sugar, optional


1. Combine broccoli florets, both cheeses, bacon and red onion in a large bowl.
2. In another small bowl, combine the dressing, buffalo sauce and sugar and stir until well combined.
3. Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss to combine.
4. Serve salad immediately, or store in the fridge for at least one hour for the best flavor. Toss salad again prior to serving.


I used bacon bits for the bacon. Feel free to make your own bacon.
