Simple, healthy – the perfect salad – great with roast chicken.
8 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup good olive oil
1/2 t red pepper flakes
1/2 t kosher salt
2 stalks broccoli, cut into florets
Put the garlic and oil in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until garlic is brown and tender, turn off the heat, add pepper flakes and salt
Pour into a heat proof container and let cool to room temperature
Blanch the broccoli for 2 or 3 minutes in salted boiling water. Drain and put in a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
In a large bowl, mix the broccoli with the garlic cloves, add enough of the oil to make it glisten.
This is classic Ina, beautiful to look at, fresh and simple!
