Broccoli Salad with Shallot-Honey Dressing

May 29, 2014


Author Notes: This dish is awesome served at room temperature, which makes it perfect for potlucks and lunches. Pine nuts can get pretty pricey, so I usually swap them with toasted raw cashews when I'm making this for a large group. alyson mance

Spread broccoli out in a large roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle pine nuts over broccoli. Return to oven and roast for another 5-10 minutes, until pine nuts are golden brown and toasted.
