When trying to incorporate more fresh veggies into your weekly meal plan, salads seem to be a quick and easy item, but it is also easy to get into a salad rut. If you find yourself using the same toppings and the same dressings give this combination a try!
Dark leafy greens are the hearty base to stand up to piles of prosciutto and a dose of creamy goat cheese. Not a fan of goat cheese? That’s ok! You could swap for a mild cheese, but I encourage you to give goat cheese a try! It adds a beautiful bite that pairs nicely with the salty meats and a bright vinaigrette. This salad can be a great option for a keto lunch or dinner.
This salad has an extra crunch with the addition of raw walnuts and thinly sliced radish. A few berries are used in both the vinaigrette and to garnish the salad for some added sweet balance. Because fruit is used only in moderation on a keto diet, I make sure to use a food scale to measure things like berries or nuts. That way I can know that I am still within my limits while enjoying the brightness that a berry adds to the dressing!
