Pre-cooked Romanesco is a great addition to salads, vegetable trays, and pasta. Break the Romanesco into pieces. Place in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Do not overcook, the pieces should be firm. Drain and then quickly submerge the pieces in an ice bath. Remove from the ice bath and dry using paper towels.
