Being a food blogger is an interesting job: you're supposed to be original and unique, but also create your own version of recipes that are already out there. Confusing right? Like it's your job to develop brand new recipes, but to also redo existing recipes without copying.
It's a hard balance to maintain, especially as a small blogger. I find it intimidating to compete for internet and Google space among the big food bloggers like Pinch of Yum, Sally's Baking Addiction, Ambitious Kitchen, Broma Bakery, and Half Baked Harvest.
But, it's also a fun challenge. I get to share my version of the best recipes out there like homemade Alfredo or classic Chicken Cordon Bleu and it's unique to me and my style of cooking!
Here at Ka Pai Cooking, we're all about healthy spins on traditional favorites as well as new and exciting healthy dishes.
Today's recipe is my version of a roasted broccoli salad from Pinch of Yum. I'll be honest, when Lindsay first shared this recipe, I made it the same day, but it didn't turn out like I hoped.
I also wanted a bit more protein and less saturated fat. So I decided to change a few things (enough that I'm not plagiarizing!) and make it my own!
Today's Easy Roasted Broccoli Salad is made entirely on a sheet pan with a simple lemon vinaigrette and it's the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu!
Not only is this roasted broccoli salad incredibly flavorful but it's also incredibly easy to make. You only need 5 simple ingredients and some pantry staples for the vinaigrette:
To avoid burning your bacon, shallots, and garlic to a crisp (like what happened when I tried the other recipe), here are some tips for maximum flavor and minimal cleanup:
Feta Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potato
Spicy Jamaican Jerk Burgers with Sweet Mango Sauce
Healthy Homemade Shrimp Alfredo
Instant Pot Sweet and Spicy Meatballs
I hope you make this Easy Roasted Broccoli Salad for your Thanksgiving dinner this year (or really, any time) because it's so easy to make and so incredibly flavorful. You can't go wrong with roasted vegetables, cheese, and bacon.
