Insalata di broccoli e datteri
Broccoli and date salad – In the right company even a broccoli salad becomes quite delicious. The sweet softness of dried dates adds a taste contrast.
Broccoli will probably never become my favourite vegetable, but it’s green, healthy and available at this time of year. And it can develop a quite winning personality, when prepared in the right way eg. as pasta con cime di rapa or presented in the right company. In fact, broccoli goes really well with some of the sweet dried fruits like dates and apricots, as this – surprisingly delicious – salad goes to show.
Lemon juice and zest
Clean the broccoli, separate it into smaller flower heads and cut the stem in small pieces.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the broccoli for 4-5 minutes.
Add lemon juice, zest, salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the stone from the dates and cut them in slices before mixing with the broccoli.
Served the broccoli and date salad as a sidedish with grilled meat
