Low Carb Broccoli Salad with Pine Nuts and Feta This easy low carb broccoli salad uses charred broccoli for extra delicious flavor. It has feta cheese, pine nuts, and a lemon vinaigrette. This would be the perfect addition to a low carb picnic or keto side dish.

This charred broccoli salad is like a greek broccoli salad but more delicious because of the crispy, charred broccoli. My new favorite way to eat broccoli! The feta and the pine nuts give so much flavor and texture and the lemon in the dressing brightens everything up.

When I make this broccoli salad, I also like to make my Instant Pot Whole Chicken or Baked Chicken Thighs to make it a complete meal.

Sometimes I just want to eat a big bowl of delicious veggies with dressing and call it a meal.  That may be because this delicious bowl of low carb broccoli salad…turned greek salad, is absolutely scrumptious with feta cheese, pine nuts, and an amazing lemon, olive oil dressing.  I could seriously lick the bowl.

I think there is a problem with people thinking vegetables need to be bland, steamed, lifeless, limp, poor excuses for food.  Is there any wonder that kids won’t eat their veggies?  Instead of merely serving a small bowl of steamed broccoli with no seasoning or flavor, add some pizazz so kids will actually eat it!  I’m looking at you school cafeterias.

HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB BROCCOLI SALAD

Okay, I’m getting off of my soapbox and talking about this low carb broccoli salad because it is amazing.  Broccoli that has been roasted in the oven at a high heat is simply delicious.  I could eat it just as is.  The stems are still a little crisp, but the dark green ends get crunchy and burnt, and there is that essence of bitterness from the burnt edges that add so much flavor.

I enjoyed this low carb broccoli salad immediately after I finished making it and it was delicious!  I then put it in the fridge and it was even more awesome after I let it sit for a bit.  This will be the perfect addition to your next BBQ, picnic, or family get together (better than heavy, mayo based salads IMHO).

Another salad recipe I enjoy is my Pastaless Pasta Salad or Zucchini Casserole!  Both are perfect low carb picnic food!
