1 pound fresh broccoli -- stems peeled and sliced diagonally, separated into florets
1 medium red pepper -- diced
1 clove garlic -- minced
2 tablespoons red onion -- minced
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Fresh ground pepper
1/2 head romaine lettuce -- torn into bite-size pieces

Preparation / Directions:

Steam the broccoli for 5 minutes. Immediately rinse the broccoli under cold running water to stop the cooking process and help the broccoli retain its bright green color. Add the red pepper, garlic and red onion to the cooled broccoli in a large salad bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients (except the lettuce) in a small bowl and mix well. Add lettuce to the broccoli mixture and toss. Pour dressing over the salad and serve.
