A Comprehensive Guide to Keto-Friendly Salad Dressing

A Comprehensive Guide to Keto-Friendly Salad Dressing

Greens, meat, and high-fat dressing — the quick and easy keto trinity that’ll help you meet your needs for vitamins, minerals, fiber, fat, and protein in one low-carb meal.  Finding a healthy and tasty keto salad dressing, however, can get tricky when you venture beyond olive oil and vinegar. Most of the popular dressings will either be high in sugar or packed with inflammatory oils (and sometimes both). Even dressings that seem keto-friendly may still contain unhealthy ingredients. To ...

Keto Chicken Salad

Keto Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is one of the best keto staples. With the right ingredients, it checks all the boxes for a perfect keto-friendly meal: satisfying, delicious, healthy, convenient, and versatile. The only problem is that all chicken salads aren’t made the same. Some are too rich, some have too much vinegar, and others come with unnecessary high-carb ingredients. Finding the right balance of flavors and textures is a challenge, so we decided to take chicken salad to the keto kitchen for a ...

Summer Tuna Avocado Salad

Summer Tuna Avocado Salad

Who knew avocado and tuna would go so well together!? I’m in awe of just how delicious this salad is. It has a mix of strong flavors complimented by the tart lemon dressing. Not to mention, it requires NO cooking and can be put together in just a few minutes! For this salad, I used an English cucumber, but if you have trouble finding it, you can use just a regular one. It should be fairly large, roughly 8 inches in length so that you can get enough for this recipe. You can also add in ...

Mushrooms & Goat Cheese Salad

Mushrooms & Goat Cheese Salad

Wow - this is one amazing salad!  The best part is the mushrooms sauteed in butter.  It helps keep the lettuce moist and pairs well with the balsamic vinegar dressing and crumbled goat cheese. For this recipe I used a baby greens mix from the store but if you can't find that mixture even just baby kale, spinach, and a little romaine will go a long way with this delicious dish.  Alternatively for the cheese, you could also try chunks of brie or feta.  Each would taste equally as ...

Homemade Keto Caesar Salad

Homemade Keto Caesar Salad

Here's how you can make a classic Caesar salad at home, with keto-friendly ingredients.  We add plenty of Parmesan cheese and dressing but skip the croutons in favor of crispy bacon.  If you've already got leftover chicken on hand, then you could make this for lunch in no time at all. The dressing uses anchovy fillets, giving it that classic flavor profile,  but if you can't stand them then feel free to skip it.  Another tip is that if you can find jarred anchovies then use those instead ...

Keto Warm Kale Salad

Keto Warm Kale Salad

Kale leaves pan-fried in butter then tossed with Dijon mustard dressing, and topped with crumbled feta cheese.  The dressing is my new favorite way to eat kale, and there's something seriously satisfying about tucking into a bowl that's both healthy and delicious.  This hearty salad works great as a nutrient-packed side dish for dinner, or simply as lunch. This is another great base recipe that you can make your own every time you create it.  Other toppings you should try include bacon, ...

Cold Zucchini Salad

Cold Zucchini Salad

This cold zucchini salad is the perfect summery salad for serving alongside BBQ.  We create this with sauteed zucchini, celery, lots of onion, and a mayonnaise-based dressing.  This salad is great for making ahead because it's even better if you let it sit overnight. There's no need to bust out the spiralizer or even the vegetable peeler because the zucchini is very simply chopped, which gives it a great chunky texture.  Try adding some rotisserie chicken and feta cheese for a heartier ...
