How to Blanch Broccoli

One trick I have learned as I have learned to cook is that I love blanching my broccoli for broccoli salads. You only do it for a few seconds but it makes the broccoli more tender and brighter looking.

To blanch your broccoli you will need a pot of water and a bowl of ice water. Bring the pot of water to boil and drop your chopped broccoli in for about 30-60 seconds. If you like crisp broccoli do it only for 30 seconds if you want the broccoli more tender do it for a minute. Then dip it into the ice water to stop the cooking process.
