Roasted Broccoli Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
6 cups broccoli florets, cut into 1” pieces
3 Tbs olive oil
4 slices bacon, chopped
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs sugar
½ cup walnuts, chopped & toasted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the broccoli with oil, salt & pepper. Spread broccoli on baking pan in a single layer. Roast until broccoli begins to turn brown and is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and place in a large bowl.
Cook the bacon over medium heat until it is almost crispy. Add onion to skillet and cook until softened. Add the vinegar & sugar and stir until sugar dissolved. Pour skillet contents over broccoli. Toss to coat broccoli with dressing. Top with walnuts before serving.
