Fresh, delicious, and off the beaten path, this five-minute keto salami salad recipe is sure to become a favorite lunch or dinner meal for you and your family.

Different Kinds of Salami

Chances are if you’ve purchased salami before you just grabbed a package of it without giving much thought to it. But there are a lot of options out there in the world of salami just waiting for you to discover them.

Salami is usually made from beef or pork, although venison and poultry versions exist as well. Here is a look at some of the most common varieties.

    • Genoa salami is typically made from pork, but sometimes beef or veal is added just for kicks. Flavored with garlic, red wine, and pepper, it is softer than many other varieties.
    • Pepperoni needs no introduction, but this Italian-American invention is spicy, finely ground, and smoked.
    • Soppressata is firm, with an intense flavor. In the U.S., this salami tends to be slightly chewy, with chile peppers or black peppercorns adding some punch.
    • Hard salami is often imported from Europe, and features a mild flavor and dry texture. It is made with pork or a mixture of pork and beef.

What Kind of Salami Works Best?

Any of the salami varieties mentioned would be delicious on this salad. It’s really a matter of personal preference.

You can even buy a couple of different kinds and mix them together. Salami and avocado also happen to make quite a delicious snack if you don’t use all of your meat and avocado making the salad.

Additional Salad Ideas

Most people on the keto diet find themselves making a lot of salad. If you use the same old lettuce, vegetables, toppings, and dressing every time, you’re going to get really bored, really fast.

Not only that, adding variety to your diet is healthier for you because you’ll be taking in different nutrients. Here are some of my favorite keto salad ideas to help you change things up.
