How To Make sweet and spicy lemon-basil broccoli salad
In a skillet, combine 1 tbsp water, sugar, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil and toss nuts in.
Once coated, place nuts on a baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven until caramelized (a few minutes).
Whisk together the vinegar, zest, lemon juice, mustard, oil, and pepper in a medium mixing mixing bowl.
Toss broccoli, tomatoes, and cheese together. Fold in dressing and nuts. Chill for a day for best flavor. 1/2 day (3-6hrs) for milder flavor and crunchier veggies.
