Broccolini With Balsamic Vinaigrette

Broccolini With Balsamic Vinaigrette created by ImPat

Most of us are very familiar with broccoli but how about broccolini? It’s similar to broccoli but more tender and milder in flavor. Nicknamed baby broccoli, broccolini is a hybrid vegetable and a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale. It has small florets and long, thin stalks. This vitamin and fiber packed vegetable is one you’ll sure to love. I've topped mine with a skinny balsamic vinaigrette to add some pizzaz…

    I really wish I could rate this higher, but I just didn't care for the dressing. I followed the recipe exactly, subbing Durkee's for the mustard since I don't like mustard but it still didn't work for me. This was also my first time trying broccolini and I really liked it...and appreciate the quick and easy cooking instructions.

    I scaled this back for 2 and the DS and I thoroughly enjoyed using broccolini freshly picked from the garden which I cooked in the steamer for 2 minutes so it still had a nice bit of crunch to it and the dressing is a stroke of genius, thank you Nancy Foz, made for All You Can Cook Buffet.
