Italian Broccoli

Italian Broccoli

We went camping last weekend and I made a simple steak dinner with broccoli and salad. I had a bit of extra vinaigrette left over from our salad so I decided to toss the steamed broccoli with it…I am so glad I did! It gave the broccoli such a nice flavor! For once, my kids actually ate every single broccoli floret on their plates – YEAH! I decided to make it again this week and thought it would pair nicely with the Italian Chicken and the Garlic Rice with Sautéed Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Toasted Pine Nuts. This is a quick and simple way to give broccoli an extra kick of flavor that your whole family will gobble up.

Italian Broccoli

Combine the olive oil, seasoned vinegar, red wine vinegar, sugar, garlic, and sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Whisk until evenly combined. Let the vinaigrette sit for 20-30 minutes to allow flavors to mingle.

Place the broccoli florets in a steamer tray that you have placed in a pot of boiling water. Once the water is boiling, place a lid on the pot and steam for 3-4 minutes or until broccoli is fork tender. Remove from the pot of water and steamer immediately. Pour the broccoli into a serving bowl then drizzle it with the vinaigrette and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Toss to coat the broccoli evenly. Serve & enjoy.
