Number of Servings: 8


    1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
    1 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
    2 heads broccoli, 1 pound each, cut into bite-size florets
    3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I used a little over a ¼ cup instead…tasted FINE, but was harder to get all the broccoli covered with the hot oil…so I might use a little more next time, but you don’t need ¾!)
    4 fat garlic cloves, minced
    2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    2 teaspoons roasted (Asian) sesame oil
    Large pinch crushed red pepper flakes.


1. In a large bowl, stir together the vinegar and salt. Add broccoli and toss to combine.
2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil until hot, but not smoking. Add garlic and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in sesame oil and pepper flakes. Pour mixture over broccoli and toss well. Let sit for at least 1 hour at room temperature, and up to 48 (chill it if you want to keep it for more than 2 hours). Adjust seasonings (it may need more salt) and serve.
