Rosemary Chicken Salad with Herb Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rosemary Chicken Salad with Herb Balsamic Vinaigrette

Cooking with herbs can be very intimidating, especially if you are looking for a quick and easy keto meal, but adding some fresh flavor to your salad is so easy! All it takes is a tablespoon or two of the right herb to elevate your lunch salads from run-of-the-mill to OMG. I am OK with a plain chicken salad using the right dressing, but add a dash of rosemary and you will actually see me get excited to eat this meal on repeat. Plus, it’s so easy to make something as simple as a chicken ...

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Crisp bacon baskets stuffed with a quick Caesar salad. This fun lunch option is a great way to switch things up. When you fold these to take a bite, you've essentially created Caesar salad tacos - and there's no judgment here on that. These baskets are savory overload. The bacon, Parmesan, and Caesar dressing combine salt and umami. The touch of tomato is not traditional for a Caesar but brings a welcome element of freshness to each bite. I mention this in this again in the steps, but ...

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

Sometimes I think that the best recipes are missed because they are simply dressed and look boring, which was the case when I first tested this recipe, but then I tasted it and WOW. In just five minutes and five steps, you can have a simple keto lunch salad that is bursting with flavor! This salad came together because one of my favorite snacks or small dinners is the marinated feta and olives from the salad bar at my local grocery store. That idea paired with some nutrient-packed spring ...

Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad

Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad

Oh man - if you’ve never had blue cheese and bacon together then you are in for a real treat. It is very delicious, and a combination that makes this salad one of the best I’ve ever had. Now this recipe is very similar to a Cobb salad, but minus a few ingredients. I would recommend adding some hard boiled eggs to this delicious dish if you want. It gives it a bit more variety, however by itself, this salad is still perfect. Yields 6 servings of Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad The ...

Vegetarian Keto Club Salad

Vegetarian Keto Club Salad

Being keto doesn’t have to be hard for all you vegetarians out there! Whether you have been doing keto for a while now, or have just made the switch, it can seem like every recipe you come across is meat heavy and low on the veggies. If you have been used to eating a diet that was primarily fruits and vegetables it can certainly leave you feeling like you are missing out and maybe even craving some of that fresh and crunchy texture. My solution? The simple but oh so filling keto club ...

Charred Veggie and Fried Goat Cheese Salad

Charred Veggie and Fried Goat Cheese Salad

There are not many salads I will eat without a dressing because, well, salad without dressing feels like chomping down on a pile of dry leaves. I prefer my salad leaves to be anything but dry and boring. That’s why I absolutely fell in love with the idea of a hot salad and char grilling is the way to go! If you are looking for something hearty and warm, but still gives you that crunch you crave from veggies, I highly recommend making this salad immediately! Not to mention, the bite of a ...

Oven Roasted Caprese Salad

Oven Roasted Caprese Salad

I’ve always have a love affair with fresh mozzarella, but as we all know even on a ketogenic diet no food is truly “unlimited.” A traditional caprese salad used to be my go-to at any potluck because the vibrant mix of fresh basil and creamy mozzarella was better than any of those other lettuce based salads…until now! The beauty of this, warm twist on a classic, is that it is much more filling but with all of the traditional flavor. Because the salad base is fiber packed spinach, it ...

Spinach Watercress Keto Salad

Spinach Watercress Keto Salad

A keto salad doesn't always have to have twelve different toppings or a long list of ingredients to be delicious, satisfying and nutrient dense! Sometimes the simplest of recipes can be a staple meal or an easy side to add with your favorite entrée. This salad is packed with healthy fats and can be altered slightly to meet any of your flavor preferences. You can try Asiago in place of Parmesan cheese, or baby kale or arugula in place of spinach. The key to making a fat burning salad is to ...

Creamy Keto “Potato” Salad

Creamy Keto “Potato” Salad

There are a few foods that I have never been able to bring myself to buy pre-made. Guacamole is one because the amount of work involved is worth the fresh taste. The other is potato salad. Why would I buy a pre-made potato salad that I eventually doctor up by adding more spices, more mustard, and more time when I could have just prepared it myself? Well, in theory anyway. Sure, I hate buying potato salad but nine times out of ten I wouldn’t actually make it either because it is time ...
