A Comprehensive Guide to Keto-Friendly Salad Dressing: Buying Tips, Restaurant Options, and Quick Recipes

A Comprehensive Guide to Keto-Friendly Salad Dressing: Buying Tips, Restaurant Options, and Quick Recipes

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 ...

Our Top 10 Keto Friendly Salads

Our Top 10 Keto Friendly Salads

The most delicious and healthy way to get more veggies in your diet is with a keto salad recipe. But why must we have the distinction of "keto salad"? Aren't all salads — with their leafy green and oily dressings — low-carb and keto-friendly anyway? Not necessarily. Many popular salads come with sugary dressings, bread, and croutons that turn one of the healthiest meals you can consume into a delivery mechanism for more carbs and unhealthy ingredients. Fortunately, your salad doesn't have ...

Keto Roasted Pumpkin & Halloumi Salad

Keto Roasted Pumpkin & Halloumi Salad

The somewhat sweet roasted pumpkin combined with salty cheese is an amazing experience. This salad is somewhat higher in carbs than we would normally post, so keep in mind that it’s better for those of you who are eating within a shorter time period each day. You can lessen the carbs by reducing the amount of pumpkin used and replace it with a lower-carb vegetable like cauliflower or zucchini. Every time we post a recipe with halloumi, we get a lot of questions about it. Look, halloumi is ...

Keto Tuna Salad with Pesto

Keto Tuna Salad with Pesto

This is a rich tuna salad, served as a salad, that’s punched up with pesto and lemon. It’s creamy without feeling overly heavy, so it’s perfect for serving up as a summery lunch. I also love that this dish can be tossed together in less than 10 minutes and is a single serving. This makes it great for those of you who are taking lunch to work or live alone. Plus, if you keep the basic ingredients on hand in your pantry then it’s an inexpensive option that you can make whenever you ...

Keto Cobb Salad with Vinaigrette

Keto Cobb Salad with Vinaigrette

With eggs, bacon, chicken, and avocado, the cobb salad is already keto friendly. I tried pairing it with a traditional red wine vinaigrette and it was out of this world. I also added in a little sugar substitute to the keto salad dressing, to sweeten it up, and it was delightful. This is one of the better salads to have if you are near your carb limit for the day as one serving is only 2.4 net carbs! The entire cobb salad is only 26 carbs in total. It is also perfect for those who need an ...

Keto BLT Salad

Keto BLT Salad

Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes - three things that are delicious in a sandwich! Today, we are deconstructing it into a salad with a nice mayonnaise-based garlic dressing. It can’t get any better than this. Now, you don’t have to use iceberg lettuce for this recipe. In fact, most BLT’s come with romaine, but using iceberg lettuce gives it a nice crisp and crunch. The dressing can be altered as well - add some hot sauce for a big kick or a tiny bit of powdered sweetener to really bring out the ...

Keto BBQ Salad with Shredded Chicken

Keto BBQ Salad with Shredded Chicken

Wow - I am loving this salad! It has a delicious smoky flavor but it’s not overwhelming and goes great with the tangy sour cream. It’s kind of like an entire BBQ in one bowl stacked with meat, greens, veggies, and cheese! I used G. Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ sauce, which is sweetened with sucralose but you can also use my homemade keto bbq sauce. It’s a great alternative for regular sauce and only has 1 carb per tablespoon. If you can’t find it, there are several varieties offered at Walmart. ...
