Barbeque season is upon us! And in celebration of this wonderful time of year, today we’re whipping up an ultra-flavorful Grilled Broccoli Salad.

It’s easy to forget to throw a healthy side dish on the table when you’re grilling away, but with this broccoli salad there are no excuses. Because it is so easy friends. Basically throw the broccoli in aluminum foil, grill for a few minutes, and mix together with a few other yums. And it’s drizzled with the most velvety Honey Mustard Dressing. Are you ready for all this tastiness?

Let’s make some Honey Mustard Dressing!

Before we get to making the broccoli salad, I like to get the dressing finished first. This Honey Mustard Dressing is rich and velvety (without any cream). The secret? Mustard!

Maille Dijon Originale works as an emulsifier, binding together the oil and lemon juice to create a smooth and silky sauce that will go perfectly with this broccoli salad. (BTW this dressing also goes with just about everything else you throw on the BBQ this summer. Basically Maille Dijon Originale is your BBQ best friend.)

Ingredients to make this Grilled Broccoli Salad

  • Broccoli: The broccoli will become slightly charred and tender, making this salad so tasty (while keeping it healthy too!)
  • Dried Cranberries: Cranberries add a nice bit of sweetness to the mix. You can substitute them with raisins if desired.
  • Feta Cheese: Feta adds some creamy tang. You can omit if needed for a dairy-free option.
  • Slivered Almonds: Finish it off with slivered almonds for a bit of crunch! You can also use roughly chopped whole almonds, or another nut/seed (walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and pine nuts would all be great).

How to Grill Broccoli

It’s easy to forget a healthy veggie side dish when you’re grilling this summer, but fortunately broccoli is so easy to grill! To grill broccoli, simply cut it into florets, drizzle with olive oil, then wrap in aluminum foil.

Grill over medium/high heat for 5 minutes, flip the whole aluminum foil packet, then grill for another 5 minutes on the other side. The result is perfectly tender, slightly charred broccoli that’s perfect on its own or in a dish (like this salad!)
