"This delicious side dish recipe goes together in a snap. The most important thing to remember is to heat, but never boil, the sauce. It goes together very quickly, so make the sauce while the broccoli steams and it will be on the table in no time. "
1 pound fresh broccoli
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Salt to taste
Trim large leaves and tough ends from broccoli and separate into spears. Steam for 8-10 minutes or until cooked to desired level of tenderness and transfer to serving platter. While broccoli is steaming, make sauce by combining mayonnaise, milk salt and pepper in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thoroughly heated but DO NOT BOIL. Remove from heat and immediately add lemon juice and zest. Mix well and spoon over steamed broccoli.
