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 ...

Fiesta Slaw with Avocado Lime Dressing

Fiesta Slaw with Avocado Lime Dressing

Whether its barbecue or snow season, coleslaw is always a staple for an easy salad or side item. Traditional coleslaw is made with sugar, vinegar, and loads of veggies. Though it could be fairly low in calories, it could also pack a whopping 20 or more carbs per ½ cup serving! This fresh low-carb take on a family favorite combines the powerful flavors of cilantro, avocado oil, and lime with a hearty, fiber-packed cabbage mix. The dressing is a variation of homemade mayonnaise using a ...

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

I frequently get asked the question "How do I eat more fat?" While in a perfect world, you can eat globs of coconut oil off a spoon, it's just not that attractive of an offer to most ketoers out there. Instead, you can create a keto salad dressing, pack it on top of a salad full of greens (micronutrient filled), and enjoy to your hearts content! Instead of worrying about how many carbs a dressing has, or which to choose from - you could make your own in just about the same amount of time. ...

Zesty Keto Italian Dressing

Zesty Keto Italian Dressing

This recipe is very similar to my honey vinaigrette recipe. In fact, I just add the herb mix that I keep on hand to the honey vinaigrette if I already have that keto salad dressing made. Also, like the honey vinaigrette, this recipe develops its flavor over time. For this reason, I recommend you make it a day or two in advance. But like all of the recipes in our condiment section, it's still delicious even without waiting! I figure if I'm going to get all of those herbs out, I might as well ...

Catalina Style Dressing

Catalina Style Dressing

I love being able to whip up a keto salad dressing from scratch with my emulsion blender! Even if I don't have my homemade ketchup on hand for this recipe, it only takes a few minutes more to make it first. Keeping my fermented ketchup or mayo (which last quite a while) on hand really makes this a cinch! They are the base for most of my salad dressings. The Catalina is one of our favorites. It has a tangy sweet taste that is both subtle and rich. It goes well with just about any kind of salad ...

Thousand Island Dressing

Thousand Island Dressing

Of all of the ketogenic salad dressings I make, this has to be our favorite. I mean, they all taste like our favorite when we're eating them, but if I had to choose one it would be this one. It has that depth the homemade mayonnaise and ketchup gives it, that subtle sweetness from the stevia, that tiny crunch of pickle and onion, and somewhere in the background a hint of tartness from the apple cider vinegar that all combines to put it over the top. I really hope you'll give this dressing a ...

The Best (and Worst) Mayo For Keto: Store-Bought Brands, Keto Recipes, and What to Avoid

The Best (and Worst) Mayo For Keto: Store-Bought Brands, Keto Recipes, and What to Avoid

Mayonnaise is arguably the best condiment for the keto diet. Not only does it add a satisfying creaminess to keto meals, but mayo can provide us with a zero-carb source of healthy fats, micronutrients, and antioxidants as well. Unfortunately, not every mayo you find in the store will be optimal for your health. Many mayo products and recipes use unhealthy oils and added sugars, so it is important to be mindful of what you buy and make to get the results you want with keto. In this guide, ...
