Broccoli is a go-to veggie side for many families yet is often served very plain. Here we offer a great way to dress it up with a creamy, herbaceous dressing that adds a lovely flavor profile that the family will love. Tarragon offers a slightly sweet, aromatic flavor to counteract the acidity of the vinegar. This simple sour cream dressing comes together in just minutes and uses ingredients that you already have. Rather than an overcooked, wilted floret, quickly boil them and preserve some of the vegetable's crispness. If you don't have tarragon on hand, sub your favorite fresh herb for a kick of flavor.

14 ounces broccoli florets
