With many layers of texture and flavor, this creamy broccoli salad recipe is a delicious vegetable side that pairs with almost anything. If you can't find dried cherries, try cranberries or currants.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position an oven rack in lowest position; preheat broiler to high.

  • Toss broccoli with 1 tablespoon oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast on the lowest rack until tender and charred in spots, 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the strength of your broiler.

  • Combine almonds and garlic with the remaining 5 tablespoons oil in a small skillet. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until just starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a serving bowl. Stir in yogurt and cherries.

  • Add the broccoli and stir to coat with the dressing. Serve room temperature or cold.
