  • 8 ounces uncooked bowtie pasta
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, diced (see notes)
  • 2/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 red onion, diced


  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup plain fat free greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)


  • Whisk together all dressing ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  • Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and transfer pasta to a large bowl. Add broccoli, cheese, celery, and onions. Add dressing and toss to combine. Serve immediately, or cover and chill 1-3 hours before serving for enhanced flavor.


Sometimes I like to use a combination of sharp yellow cheddar cheese, and colbyjack cheese.
