1 Head Broccoli, Cut into Forets

2 Tablespoons Pine Nuts

1 Garlic Clove, Minced

½ Orange, Juiced

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

½ Teaspoon Salt, to Taste

Black Pepper, to Taste

2 Tablespoons Kalamata Olives


  1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a rapid boil. Add ice to a large bowl nearby and have tongs ready. When the water comes to a rapid boil, add the broccoli florets all at once. Blanch until bright green and crisp-tender, about 2-3 minutes, then transfer to the ice bath to stop the cooking process. Drain broccoli.
  2. Place the pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat. Toast, tossing regularly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a small bowl.
  3. In a jar with a lid, combine the garlic, orange juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Shake well to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  4. In a serving bowl, combine the broccoli, pine nuts and olives. Dress with vinaigrette and toss to coat.
