  • 2 tsp flaked sea salt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel long strips of zest from 2 lemons. Juice zested lemons into a small bowl, set aside.

  • Place broccolini on one half of the sheet pan. Spray with olive oil spray and then drizzle with 2 teaspoon of lemon-oil mixture.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together reserved 1 tablespoon lemon-oil mixture, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, mustard, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Serve immediately in a large serving bowl with lemon-oil mixture drizzled over broccolini. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Enjoy!
