Garlicky Sesame-Cured Broccoli Salad

This salad comes together quickly, but does require a bit of planning ahead as it should marinate at least an hour and preferably a day or more. This is a great alternative to standard broccoli dishes. The sesame flavour is quite pronounced, so menu plan accordingly.
