“You can use either the broccolini or broccoli crowns. We also thought asparagus would be nice with this. If you have it, you can use a comercial dijon/mayo mixture. Otherwise, its easy enough to mix them yourself. I got 6 open faced sandwiches out of this on homemade rye bread. Our bread might not be sized the same as store bought so this may make a difference in the serving size. I don't think I could have gotten more out of it but I could have piled more of the broccolini on the bread and made 4, just so you know. I hope you like these. We had them for dinner with Bacon, Avocado & Tomato Salad Bacon, Avocado & Tomato Salad, this would also make a nice lunch, especially for company.”
