  • 4 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon, about 1 tsp.
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper, plus more as needed
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar

Salad: Coarsely chop broccoli into florets; place in a large bowl. In a food processor, combine olives and green onions; pulse together until finely chopped. Fold olive mixture into broccoli.
