This light and fresh side is accented by tart lemon juice and fresh-cracked pepper.
1 pound sprouting broccoli
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Pinch of fresh ground pepper
1. Wash and trim the broccoli and steam for 5 minutes, until it is crisp yet tender. Drain.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the broccoli and toss to coat.
Variations: This crisp side is also wonderful topped with chopped hazelnuts, or a pinch of crushed red pepper in lieu of black pepper.
