How to make it

  • Fill a large bowl with cold water and 12 ice cubes.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt.
  • Divide the broccoli into florets.
  • Add broccoli to boiling water and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • With a slotted spoon, transfer cooked broccoli to the ice water.
  • Cut the garlic curls into 4-inch lengths.
  • Cook them in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them to the ice water.
  • When the vegetables are cool, drain the water and return them to the dry bowl.
  • Heat a small pot over medium heat. Add the peanut oil and the pine nuts.
  • Toss the pine nuts over the heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the pine nuts from the pan and set them aside to cool.
  • Add the garlic cloves to the same pot and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add vinegar.
  • Cover the pot and simmer for 15 minutes, until the garlic is very soft.
  • Place garlic and vinegar mix in a blender.
  • Add the peanut oil and tarragon and puree to make a smooth dressing.
  • Toss the dressing with the broccoli, garlic curls and pine nuts.

    This sounds incredible. I've never used garlic curls before, and tossing the pine nuts in is the clincher. The peanut oil and tarragon must make a really delicious dressing. Anxious to give this a try.
