This recipe for Roasted Broccoli Salad with Mustard Seed Maple Dressing has a lot of flavor and texture while still being so easy to put together!  These combined flavors just make the roasted broccoli so happy!  We start by roasting the broccoli, and while it is in the oven, the rest of the ingredients are prepared.

The dressing is simple but packed with so much vibrant depth.  Whole grain mustard is combined with fresh tarragon, shallots, and lemon juice with just enough maple syrup to balance it out without being overly sweet.  It is so bright without being to sharp and perfectly pungent!

We toss the roasted broccoli and dressing along with kalamata olives and top it off with the toasted almonds and lemon zest.  Feta is delicious here but optional!  Serving at room temperature will bring all the good tastes front and center.

  1. This recipe is too good!!! And so easy to make!! I subbed pistachios for the almonds. I served this with jasmine rice, avocado, and fresh tomatoes from my friend’s garden. A lovely lunch. Looking forward to making this one again! 🤗

  2. This is one of my favourite ways to serve broccoli – I’ve made it several times and it’s delicious! I’m bringing it to a pot luck dinner tonight and I know it’s going to be a hit.
