Once the grill has been hot for 10 to 15 minutes, place the broccoli pieces on the grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until it’s charred and golden. Remove the broccoli and let it cool slightly, then chop it into pieces.
Once the broccoli has been cooked, place it in a large bowl. Add in the bacon, diced shallot and almonds. Toss the mixture together. Drizzle on half of the dressing and toss the salad well.
