We microwave the broccoli for about half the suggested time so it maintains its texture in the salad. This dish can be made a day ahead.
Serves 4 (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
1. Place broccoli package in microwave; microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes.
2. Combine cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and cream cheese in a large bowl. Add broccoli, onion, and next 5 ingredients (through garlic), stirring to combine. Sprinkle with almonds.
