Grilled Broccoli

So simple, so yummy.  This was a recipe my best friend from high school and I used to fix all the time.  Honestly I still prepare it many times a month.  If you have a picky eater in the house this will win them over, I promise.

Fresh broccoli bunches, 2 servings per large bunch
Italian dressing, regular, light (I use) or fat free

Cut the broccoli into florets, watch the size b/c you don't want them small enough to fall through the grill.  Toss with Italian dressing (enough to coat) and allow it to sit for an hour or longer, turning occasionally.  Simply grill over medium high heat for about 4& 1/2  minutes per side.  Watch closely, but allow it to char a bit.  Remove from the grill and add back to the bowl you marinated it in and toss with a bit more dressing.  Serve with a touch of Parmesan (if you want to - Mike Butler avoid this step).  Yum and even wonderful cold the next day!  Enjoy! I normally grill these while my chicken or steaks are resting.

I will most definitely give this a try. My kiddos love trees and will love this one. The roast looks amazing also. It looked so tender!
