I used fresh broccoli and just really enjoyed this different take on broccoli! Thanks! Made for the Cooking with Spirits game in the Photo forum!

I liked this dish better cold. If serving hot, I would use about 1/2 the lemon juice. Also, as written, the broccoli comes out tender, but I prefer it tender-crisp and still bright green, rather than the duller, "olive" green.
