Roasted Broccoli Salad with a Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing is a light and refreshing salad to help celebrate National Vinegar Month. This Roasted Broccoli Salad  is perfect by itself for a healthy lunch option.  Or you can mix up a large bowl and serve it alongside a meal.

This recipe is the first in a six month partnership with Pompeian in the #PantryInsiders Ambassadorship. Pompeian is a brand I love and use so I am very happy to be able to bring you some new recipes using Pompeian products.

Roasted Broccoli Salad with a Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Pompeian Olive Oil and Pompeian Vinegars are staples in my pantry.  I love to use olive oil to saute with. It adds a rich flavor to whatever I am cooking and is a healthier alternative to butter or margarine.   When roasting vegetables like broccoli for this Roasted Broccoli Salad olive oil is used because it has a higher burn point. If you ever tried roasting vegetables with any other type of oil the end result probably didn’t turn out very well. 

Eating healthier is important. I love salads and usually eat them as a side dish with a meal. This Broccoli Salad recipe can be eaten as a side dish or a meal itself.

For this Roasted Broccoli Salad you will need a spring salad mix or fresh spinach. I made it today using a spring salad mix but it would be just as good made with baby spinach. Use whatever you have on hand.

To the Roasted Broccoli you will need:

  • Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh Broccoli
  • minced garlic
  •  black pepper
  •  salt

  •  brown sugar
  • black pepper
  • salt

The complete ingredient list and recipe instructions can be found below in the Ziplist recipe format for easy printing and saving.

  • You probably have most of the salad ingredients on hand already. The dressing recipe is a Balsamic Vinaigrette recipe that can be made ahead of time and makes about 1 cup of dressing. Store the leftover dressing refrigerated and discard after a week.
  • Place all of the dressing ingredients into a mason jar or a container with a lid. Shake vigorously for about 2 minutes. Refrigerate the dressing while you roast the broccoli.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 F.
  • Rinse your salad mix and spin or pat dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  • In a bowl large enough to hold the broccoli florets mix the olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Add the rinsed and trimmed broccoli florets. Stir to coat evenly. Pour the broccoli out onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Roast the broccoli for 10 minutes, turning after five minutes.
  • Remove from the oven to cool slightly. If you enjoy a wilted salad you may combine the broccoli and salad greens while the broccoli is still hot. Otherwise allow the broccoli to cool just until warm.
  • Add the roasted broccoli to a bed of salad greens or baby spinach. Grate some carrot over the salad if using. Sprinkle a handful of raw cashews over the top of the salad. Drizzle with Balsamic Vinaigrette.
