The longer you let the broccoli marinade, the better the flavor. This is a great dish for icebox raids!
1 head broccoli, cut into small 2 – 3 inch florets
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 – 3 tablespoons vinegar
freshly ground pepper to taste
- Mix the marinade ingredients together.
- Steam or quickly boil the broccoli florets only until they are tender-crisp. Drain immediately and chill in ice water bath to set color and stop the cooking process.
- Toss the well-drained broccoli with the marinade and let the flavors blend for at least ½ hour. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
