Broccolini and Tomato Salad


This dressing is very yummy. You can mop it up with bread. Make sure to use broccolini or young broccoli.

Ingredients: 1 lb broccolini or young broccoli, 2 tomatoes

For vinaigrette: 1 lemon (grated zest and 2 Tbs juice), 1 large shallot or 1/4 red onion (minced), 2 tsp dried marjoram or dried oregano (1 heaping Tbs if you are using fresh herb), 6 oil-cured olives, 4 Tbs olive oil, salt and black pepper

  1. Break broccolini into florets. Cut the stems into 2″ length, peel them, and halve them lengthwise. Steam broccolini for 3-5 minutes until tender but not mushy.
  2. Seed olives, and mince them. Whisk all the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Pour vinaigrette over warm broccolini. Mix with your hands.
  4. Cut tomatoes in wedges. Add tomatoes over broccolini and serve.
