(This is a very old recipe that has been removed from my site, but I am leaving the printer-friendly recipe here so anyone who was a fan of the recipe can still find it.)


  • 1 large bunch broccoli rabe
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil (or more)
  • 1 T best quality balsamic vinegar (or more)
  • salt, pepper to taste


  1. Cut the stems off the broccoli rabe and discard, and cut leaves into thick ribbons crosswise.
  2. Wash in salad spinner (affiliate link) and spin dry if needed.
  3. Heat olive oil in large frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Add broccoli rabe and saute 3-5 minutes, until semi wilted, but still a little bit crisp.
  5. Turn off heat, drizzle balsamic vinegar over the broccoli rabe, season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
