Cheesy Broccoli with Rhode Island Chicken Salad

What does that look like to you? A cyclops? Ah, great minds think alike. Yes, it is the Cyclops Salad. Odysseus would be proud.

Cheesy Broccoli with Rhode Island Chicken Salad
1 plate of raw broccoli from the salad bar
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup shredded cheese from burrito bar
1/4 cup Rhode Island Chicken Salad (the one with grapes and apples!)
1 cyclops pupil (tomato slice for Greek mythology non-fans)

1. Put broccoli and mushrooms on a plate, and cover with another plate. Steam on high power in the microwave for 80-90 seconds, until broccoli is just barely cooked through (you don't want mushy broccoli, do you?).
2. Top with shredded cheese, and microwave, uncovered, for 30 seconds to just melt the cheese.
3. Put a dollop of chicken salad on top, and garnish with a beautiful slice of tomato. Admire the cyclopsness of the dish before you, and take a moment to be thankful for both of your eyes.
