Preparation

Cut broccoli into florets. Peel and cut broccoli stems into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Set aside.

Pour enough water into saucepan to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) up side; bring to boil. Place broccoli in steamer basket in saucepan; cover and steam until bright green but still crisp, about 1 minute. Drain.

In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Add broccoli, feta cheese, tomatoes and onion; toss to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)
