    Salmon “Nicoise” Salad

    Baked Brocolli

    This is one of our most favorite sides. Baking the broccoli brings out a somewhat “nutty” flavor and it can be the perfect addition to a salad, pasta dish or just have it as a side dish. This recipe is simple, fool proof and well, downright delish. Preheat oven to 400 degrees 3 cups broccoli, trimmed into bite sized pieces (I usually make them smaller if they’re going into a salad) 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper Place broccoli in a mixing bowl, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake 20-25 minutes Warning: Once this comes out of the oven a few pieces will inevitably…
