High quality parmesangrated, peeled, shaved--your choice
Fresh ground black pepper for serving
Put the trimmed broccoli leaves into a pot with a steamer basket, turn the heat to high, cover and cook for 30 seconds, or until the leaves are just barely tender.
The leaves should be bright green and vibrant. I like them a little crunchy still and full of life.
Remove the steamed leaves to a salad bowl and toss with some of the dressing to taste, or serve in small salad bowls and let guests dress the leaves to their taste. Pass the parmesan and fresh black pepper alongside.
