I have a really quick and easy side dish for you today. I don’t quite remember what led to me making this recipe, but broccoli salads seem to be popular lately – at least I’ve seen a lot of them on Instagram and Pinterest. Many use raw broccoli, which isn’t really my thing. If anything I would need to at least blanch the broccoli to make it a little more visually palatable with the vibrant green color and to add some crunch to the florets.

My favorite way to make broccoli is roasted, so for this recipe I decided to lightly roast the broccoli and some radishes. Tossed with red onion, golden raisins, and a light dressing with a bit of zing from mint and lemon juice, this is a perfect side dish for your next summer barbecue or any weeknight meal. I paired it with a fillet of fish, but could easily see it next to eggs, chicken, or some grilled steak.

Oh, and since it’s National Eat Your Vegetables Day, today is the day to try this recipe or another veggie-full dish. Hope you enjoy it!
