1 head garlic
1 cup good olive oil
1 t. crushed red pepper flakes
1 t. kosher salt
4 stalks broccoli, cut into florets (8 cups of florets)

Directions:
Put the garlic cloves and oil in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered over low heat for 10-15 min. until the garlic is browned and tender. Turn off the heat and add the red pepper flakes and 1/2 t. salt. Immediately pour into a heat-proof container to stop the cooking. Allow to cook to room temperature. For the salad, blanch the broccoli florets in a large pot of boiling salted water for 2-3 min., until crisp tender. Drain well and immerse immediately into a large bowl of ice water until the broccoli is cooled. This process stops the cooking and sets the bright green color. Drain well. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with 1/2 t. salt. 1/4 cup of the oil used to cook the garlic, and 8 or more cloves of cooked garlic. Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
