step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Spread walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until fragrant and golden, about 5 minutes.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Have ready a bowl of ice water.
  • Drop broccoli in boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove broccoli. Transfer it immediately to the ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well and place the broccoli in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper. Spoon over the broccoli and stir to combine.  Stir in the walnuts, raisins, and scallions and serve.
