This was one of those concoctions where I stepped into the kitchen and knew that I was starting with the broccoli I had purchased and needed to make use of. Florets cut and placed into a mixing bowl, I scoured my fridge and then my cabinets, picking through things repeating “this? no/yes.” What resulted was this delicious salad that keeps your fork migrating back to the bowl.
2 Heads of Broccoli, florets only
4 Green Onions, thinly sliced
½ Green Pepper, chopped into small pieces
½ cup Green Beans, cut into small pieces
4 Roma Tomatoes, diced
½- ¾ cup Black Olives, sliced
¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar
¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp Honey or Agave
1 tsp Dried Oregano
½ tsp Salt, or to taste
Good Pinch of Black Pepper, or to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium-large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
Cover and allow flavors to meld for 40 minutes or more; a few hours… even better.
