Grilled Broccoli Salad with Black Garlic Dressing Recipe

Serves 2 People


  • 2 Crowns of Broccoli
  • 8-10 Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 1 Thai Chili julienned
  • Sesame Seeds Toasted
  • 2 Green Onions Sliced on a Bias
  • Dressing
  • 4 oz Black Garlic
  • 100 ml Soy Sauce
  • 50 ml Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 T Dijon Mustard (Smooth or grainy)
  • Sugar
  • Canola Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Black Garlic Dressing

Puree the black garlic, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and dijon mustard in a blender. Slowly add the oil to form an emulsion until the desired thickness. Thin with water if needed and season with salt, pepper, and sugar as desired.

Grilled Broccoli Salad

Trim off the bottom of the broccoli crown and cut the broccoli into rustically large chunks. Season with oil, salt, and pepper, and char on a hot grill. Trim the shiitake mushrooms by cutting off the base of the stem and cutting them in half. Season with salt and pepper and cook on the grill for 30 seconds to a minute and a half depending on the heat of your grill. Once the broccoli is fully cooked and has a nice char, toss with the mushrooms, as much dressing as required, and the Thai chili. Omit the chili if you prefer no spice. Plate the salad and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions
