Whether you’re a salad person or not, a keto dieter or not, you can bet these keto salad recipes will hit the spot! Sometimes you crave a little fresh! Macros included on every salad recipe here.
Are you a salad person? I’m not.
But I’m also not a huge meat person. I lean more toward the “tons of low carb veggies” camp rather than the “carnivore keto” camp.
Still, it took me YEARS to figure out some tricks to getting myself to enjoy a salad. One of those tricks is to simply have the right salad recipes! The right combo of ingredients really makes a salad work.
Keto salad recipes are especially difficult to find because we’re all watching our carbs and some vegetables are surprisingly high in carbohydrates.
It can be just as easy to throw a salad together doing the keto diet, but it just takes some adjustment and knowing which vegetables are lower in carbohydrates.
If you need an easy keto food grocery list, check out my list here. This list is the perfect cheatsheet to tack inside a kitchen cabinet so you have an easy reference of low carb and high fat foods.
But what do you do once you get those ingredients home? Have no fear! I’ve put together a list of several awesome ketogenic salad recipes for you to choose from!
Do you remember Doritos? I know, it’s been a while, but think. Do you remember how delicious they are in a taco salad?
Totally unnecessary. The taco meat for this taco salad has a great flavor that is so close to Doritos that you won’t miss them at all.
Plus, if you go to this post, you’ll find tons of other recipes to use Keto Super Taco Meat! Make a big batch and use it all week long for several different recipes, or freeze some and have it for when you don’t feel like doing tons of prep!
I love Greek food. I’m so lucky that so many Greek dishes are keto friendly!
This salad features a delicious Mediterranean-inspired tilapia filet on a bed of Greek Spinach Salad tossed with my version of a basic Greek salad dressing. Chopped spinach, olives, feta, and fresh parsley make an appetizing appearance.
This perfectly potluck-ready broccoli salad is from Shelby over at Grumpy’s Honeybunch. Shelby tells me it’s a family favorite that the internet loved, too–it went viral a few days after she posted it!
Broccoli florets, jalapeno pepper, cheddar cheese, bacon, and a creamy sour cream dressing–yum! Go make this salad and see what the fuss is all about!
Kelly at Keto on a Dime is a lady after my own heart. How did she know how much I LOVE Greek flavors! Her salad features crisp cucumbers, tangy feta, and is smothered in a creamy Greek herb sauce.
And if you’re looking for keto budget advice, she’s your resource. Switching to keto is an adjustment that doesn’t need to be expensive, but it’s helpful to have a good authority to rely on. You’ll find all sorts of great frugal tidbits over there!
If you love Cafe Rio and Costa Vida, you’ll love this keto sweet pork salad. It has tender, flavorful shredded sweet pork on a romaine salad with avocado, cotija cheese, cilantro, Mexican cheeses, tomato, and a creamy keto tomatillo dressing. Enjoy!
