If you like oranges, you'll enjoy this citrusy sauce I adopted when looking for more interesting way to serve broccoli. It's also nice as a dipping sauce for pork chops and chicken. —Estelle Hardin of Kanab, Utah

"I loved this side dish. I used the zest of one orange and then cut up two oranges to use in the dish itself."

"The orange sauce is very good; we didn't like the sweetness with broccoli, though. I'll remember the sauce recipe to use over fruit."
