Today I am going to share a refreshing salad with you, using fresh broccoli, lemon and garlic. This salad is a great source of vitamins and minerals, and it tastes so good you will forget that it is healthy too!
- 1 pound broccoli
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 medium clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Trim off leaves and bottoms of broccoli stalks, and split thick stems lengthwise. Cook, covered, in a small amount of salted water until just tender. Drain and chill. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Drizzle over thoroughly chilled broccoli and serve.
