Broccoli Salad with Avocado

I always get Dr. Andrew Weil's newsletters, I like his Eastern and Western approach to medicine. He also includes some recipes and this was one that sounded good and that I am going to try. It contains two superfoods!

~ 1 lb. broccoli
~ 1 ripe avocado
~ 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
~ 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
~ 1 Tbsp. grainy prepared mustard
Trim and wash the broccoli and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Steam or boil the broccoli in a large pot until it is just crunchy-tender and bright green, then drain it well, and cool.
Peel and pit the avocado, then cut it into small cubes. Fold the avocado into the broccoli.
Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and mustard together in a small bowl, until well mixed.
Toss the broccoli and avocado with the dressing.
