I really feel like I’ve stumbled upon gold with this recipe, guys. This Roasted Broccoli Salad with Almonds makes use of virtually all substances that I maintain readily available, and is so good that I used to be actually shoveling it into my mouth as I used to be taking photographs. Thank goodness the crunch lo mein noodles are available a very large bag, as a result of I’ll be making this Roasted Broccoli Salad with almonds once more a number of occasions within the subsequent couple of weeks.
While I like the what the crunchy lo mein noodles convey to the feel of this salad, I already know a few of it would be best to know what you should utilize of their place. If you simply don’t wish to purchase lo mein noodles, you may use a brick of raw ramen noodles damaged up, or in the event you’re trying to make this somewhat extra low-carb, you’ll be able to double the broccoli and simply skip the crunchy noodles all collectively. I wouldn’t counsel skipping the sugar within the dressing, although, as a result of it’s completely crucial to balancing the salt and acid within the dressing.
You can use both recent or frozen broccoli florets, simply remember that recent could take a unique period of time to roast. When roasting greens it’s all the time a good suggestion to control them anyway, because the measurement of the vegetable and variations in oven temperatures can change roasting time fairly a bit.
Leftovers of this recipe are okay, however it’s undoubtedly greatest recent. Luckily, this makes a small-ish batch. It will make 4 small facet servings, or two bigger servings.
