Recipe: Broccoli with Warm Dijon Dressing

Bruce Bradley's warm dijon dressing is a quick, go-to sauce that can make your broccoli go from ho-hum to wow in seconds!Over the years I’ve learned to love the taste of vegetables “as is,” without any sauce. But let’s face it, occasionally it’s great to mix things up! And sometimes a little bit of sauce is just enough of a nudge to get your kids gobbling up their veggies.

Unfortunately I don’t trust most of the pre-sauced vegetables out there. The good news is you can make your own delicious sauces in no time at all. My on the fly, warm Dijon dressing takes seconds to prepare, and boy is it delicious!

So steam up some broccoli and drizzle on some sauce. Just be sure to make some extra because your vegetables will literally disappear!
