Roast-Beef and Broccoli Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

Horseradish cream is a traditional accompaniment to roast beef, hot or cold. Here roast beef from the deli is tossed with broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and a creamy horseradish dressing. We use the broccoli stems as well as the florets. When peeled they're as good as the tops—maybe better.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds broccoli
  2. 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  3. 1/4 cup drained bottled horseradish
  4. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  5. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/8 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  7. 1/2 cup olive or other oil
  8. 3 tablespoons sour cream
  9. 3/4 pound thick-sliced (1/8 inch) roast beef, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
  10. 2 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  11. 6 scallions including green tops, cut diagonally into thin slices
  1. Separate the broccoli tops into small florets. Peel the broccoli stems and cut them in half lengthwise and then into 1/4-inch slices. In a large saucepan, steam or boil the broccoli until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and let cool.
  2. In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the vinegar, horseradish, mustard, salt, and pepper. Add the oil slowly, whisking. Whisk in the sour cream. Add the broccoli, beef, tomatoes, and scallions and toss to coat.

Suggested Pairing

White wine may seem an odd choice for roast beef, but the dominant elements here are horseradish and broccoli, not meat. Accordingly, pull the cork on a California Sauvignon Blanc for an exciting pairing.
