-18-20 jumbo pasta shells
-1/2 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
-1 (7.5 oz) can salmon, drained and flaked
-1 can cherry tomatoes, halved
-4-5 green onions, finely chopped
-1/4 cup mayonnaise
-1/4 cup ranch dressing
Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again.
Meanwhile, bring a small pot of water to a boil.  Blanche the broccoli florets for 2 minutes.  Drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking and keep that beautiful green color.  Drain well and place in large bowl.  To that, add the salmon, cherries and onions.  Mix well. Add the mayo and ranch.  Give it a good stir and make sure everything is coated evenly.  
Scoop mixture into cooked shells.
Enjoy right away or store in the fridge until ready to eat!
