Ingredients
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled
  • 3 fresh beefsteak tomatoes
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • ¾ cup Rogliano's Authentic Italian Dressing (more or less depending on your preference)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Prepare the vegetables by washing thoroughly and cutting them into larger bite size pieces. Combine them into a large bowl.
  2. If you like extra crunchy broccoli, use the broccoli raw.
  3. If you like it to be softer, blanch* the broccoli in water for 3 minutes, rinse with cold water and then add to the bowl.
  4. After the vegetables are ready, drizzle the Rogliano's Authentic Italian Dressing on top (mix a little bit of the Rosso Italian Dressing in too if you like a kick!).
  5. Stir the dressing in gently, and season with salt and pepper if you like!
Notes
This salad can be served immediately, but should be stored in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
*How to blanch broccoli:
Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Place 1- 1½ inch broccoli florets in the boiling water for 3 minutes.
Pull the broccoli florets out of the boiling water and place into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
Broccoli should be bright green and firm (but soft) when done.
