Clean broccoli as noted
below, and cut into bite-size pieces. Steam until it loses hardness, but
not crispness or bright green color. This should take about seven minutes,
depending on the freshness of the broccoli.
While broccoli is steaming,
pit the olives. When pitted, cut the olives into slivers.
Remove broccoli from
steamer and put into serving bowl. Mix in the grated lemon and the olives.
Sprinkle on the sesame seeds, the oil, and lemon juice. Season with salt
to taste. Toss well.
Serves 4 - 6
