"This was definitely a different broccoli style. Originally the "dressing" didn't taste quite right but then I doubled the prepared mustard and it made this pretty good! The flavor was a little sweet. We liked it, but it wasn't our absolute favorite one. We may try it again."

"YUM! I used my Oster food steamer and steamed the florets for 10 minutes or so, then tossed everything together in a bowl.
