Grilled Broccoli Wedges with Herb Vinaigrette

Lightly charring the broccoli then finishing over indirect heat allows the stems to get tender without becoming too burnt.

Prep Time:

Additional Time:

Total Time:
30 mins
4 cups


  • 2 small broccoli stalks, trimmed and quartered

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat one side of the grill to medium-high; leave the other half unheated.

  2. Toss broccoli in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill the broccoli, cut-side down, over the heat, turning once halfway through, until lightly charred, 10 to 15 minutes total. Move to the unheated side, close the lid and cook until the stalks are tender, 10 to 15 minutes more.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, basil, chives, mustard and pepper with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt in the bowl.

  4. Toss the broccoli with the vinaigrette to coat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
