I didn't have the Meyer lemon olive oil, so I used Temecula Olive Oil Companies Citrus blend. It was terrific. I will use the again the summer as a salad and maybe toss in a can od mandarin oranges. item not reviewed by moderator and published

needs more lemon or maybe some garlic? I would have liked a more pronounced flavor on it. I ordered some meyer lemon olive oil just to make this dish and it just didnt wow me. I think a squirt of fresh lemon would really brighten this up, even with regular olive oil. Also I think the boiling time is way too long, leaves no "bite" left in the broccoli, I would cut it down to 2 or 3 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
