Broccoli with Lemon


  • ~3 cups broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon or 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

  2. Cool a bit. 
  3. Whisk olive oil with juice of one lemon or the lemon juice.
  4. Pour over broccoli; chill.
  5. Enjoy as a nutritious side dish, tasty snack or add to your salad.

Mary-Beth says: “Broccoli took a big hit in popularity in 1990 when President Bush let everyone know that he didn’t like broccoli, and prohibited it from Airforce One. I remember thinking “what an odd thing to say, and oh dear for broccoli.”
