Savory Broccoli Rabe
Grilled Salmon and Peach Salad

Here's a delicious way to dress up broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe is a non-heading type of broccoli with long thin leafy stalks that's topped with small florets. It's packed with vitamins A, C and K in addition to potassium, iron and calcium. It also contains phytochemicals that fight cancer and improve your overall health. Servings: 6 

Here's what you need:

3 Tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2 bunches broccoli rabe, stems trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
dash of freshly ground sea salt
Juice from 1 small lemon
Place a steamer basket over a 3 quart pot, filled with water up to the bottom of the basket. Bring the water to a boil, add the broccoli, cover and steam for 3 minutes. Immediately drop the broccoli into a bowl of ice water. After a few minutes drain the broccoli and set aside.
In a large pan warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until golden. Add the broccoli, olives and salt. Saute for another 5 minutes until tender. Remove from heat, place in a serving dish, sprinkle with pine nuts and toss with lemon juice.
