Broccoli Salad Recipe

I HATE that I can't post a picture of this salad - it's so colorful and FRESH looking! Perfect for a summer picnic, BBQ, or pot-luck. That's just where I took it last week - to our home group BBQ. Let me know if you like it! Enjoy!!
2 bunches fresh broccoli
1 red onion
2 cans red kidney beans (drained)
1 pkg. shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2 cups)
Cherry tomatoes (halved) or Grape tomatoes
1 bag Fritos (crushed)
Italian Dressing
Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces. Dice or cut onion into small strips.
Marinate the broccoli, onion, kidney beans and cheese in the dressing in a large bowl for up to 2 days. (Do NOT use a metal bowl.) *Note - I usually don't plan that far enough ahead and just make it that morning and it's marinated enough.
Just before serving, drain the salad or pour off the liquid. Add the tomatoes and the crushed Fritos, mix and serve!
