Make the vinaigrette. Finely mince the reserved broccoli florets and remaining ½ shallot and add to a large bowl. Add remaining 1 tsp urfa and vinegar. While continuously whisking, stream in the remaining remaining 4 TB oil.
In a large bowl, season roasted broccoli with dressing to taste and transfer to a serving platter.

A few high-quality ingredients come together in this delicious dish. Extra Virgin Olive Oil replaces mayonnaise, for a healthier salad that’s perfect for serving outdoors on hot days. And since the flavor improves while the salad sits in the fridge, you can make this ahead and serve it the next day.
