 puree 2 cloves for the vinaigrette and reserve the rest for garnish.
 
 Meanwhile, bring a large pot (not aluminum) of cold water to a boil Cut 
 the broccoli into medium florets. Have ready a large container of ice 
 water. At the rolling boil, add salt to the water and just blanch the 
 broccoli for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. (The water must remain hot so you may 
 want to work in small batches). Immediately drain and transfer to the 
 ice-water. Chill and drain.
 
 Prepare vinaigrette. Toss broccoli with first five ingredients and the 
 vinaigrette. Arrange on plates and garnish with poached garlic cloves and 
 sprinklwe with Feta.
