Aunt Judy's Cold Broccoli Salad

My family is filled with really good cooks. Food is a passion, and it's what has made so many great memories through the years. The Longo sisters know what they're doing in a kitchen, and each aunt has their specialty dish. This happens to be one of my Aunt Judy's.

I cheated this time when I made it because I roasted the broccoli. I was already roasting beets so I just threw the broccoli in there too. She makes it by steaming the broccoli, but I'm not gonna lie. I SUCK at steaming things. I don't know why it's so difficult for me, but I'm rarely successful at it.

I cut up the broccoli, tossed it in a bowl with some evoo, salt and pepper, threw it on my stoneware roasting pan and roasted it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. I let it cool, then drizzled lemon juice and my roasted garlic over it, stir and chill. Then serve. It's so good. You could eat a pound of it. But don't. Cause broccoli farts? Just. No.
