An "Oh So Yummy" Marinated Broccoli Tomato Salad

This broccoli preparation is simple and tasty!

I don't know when.. or how it happened, but broccoli is the vegetable of choice for all of my kids. To my younger ones they look forward to a meal with the "tree's". My teens actually crave broccoli in it's many different preparations or simply steamed with a splash of lemon. 

Today's broccoli preparation comes by way of my oldest daughter who grocery shopping for me this weekend came home with all the ingredients to make our very favorite Broccoli Tomato Salad.

In this recipe I simply make a fresh mayonnaise dressing adding fresh minced lemon rind and a 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, salt and freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper and toss it in with 2-3 largely cut vine ripened tomatoes and enough steamed broccoli to feed all your family and guests.

 Blend and refrigerate for at least an hour to marinate the vegetables. Hope you enjoy this yummy salad.. from my kitchen to yours! 

Buon Appetito!
