My twist. Do not over cook the broccoli. Steam it. No need to drain anything. Chill, then pulse. I add a little sprinkle of sugar and kosher salt while steaming. I used sweet onion, radish a couple of Kalamata olives, tomatoes, cilantro and a jalapeño. I used lemon infused olive oil, rice wine vinegar, lemon, lime and little honey too. Greek seasoning. Then tossed in feta and Mozzeralla cheese. Toss, refrigerate and serve as a salad. Again, a different twist. Hope you enjoy.

Yes, like guacamole, but less caloric and very tasty. Serve with white tortilla chips--those thin ones.
