So many people think keto is all about bacon and butter, but that’s so far from the truth. In reality vegetables make up a large portion of your plate in almost every meal you have when following a balanced ketogenic diet. Easy low-carb salads are one of the healthiest things that you can eat – and they definitely don’t have to be boring.
If you enjoy a satisfying, tasty, and substantial salad for lunch or dinner, don’t let keto stand in the way. Just because they are filled with veggies doesn’t mean they aren’t also loaded with flavor! Here are 10 of our favorite salad recipes that are packed with nutrition and perfect for any season of the year.
Of course, you can always make your own keto salad recipe as well. Simply pick a protein (like chicken, fish, beef, or eggs), choose your salad base (dark leafy greens are going to be best, particularly spring mixes), choose the toppings/mix-ins (avocado, tomato, onion, peppers, broccoli, cucumber, etc.), and add fat to it (either through a fatty dressing, olives, shredded cheese, nuts/seeds, or a combination of all of these).
I hope you enjoy these keto salads at your next family dinner or just take them to work for lunch! If you do want to have salads for lunch, just remember to keep the dressing and toppings separate so that the greens don’t wilt.
