The Lazy Cook’s Way To a Tasty Keto Salad 

It doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming to make a Ketogenic salad, at all. You could even call these recipes Keto Fast Food - and they’re 100% healthier than anything that is usually considered fast food.

Some of my all-time favorites for a busy day are:

  • 5-Minute Keto Salami Salad - This is not your ordinary salad, which is why I love it so much! You can literally whip this up in no time, so it’s perfect for those hectic weekdays when you have zero time for cooking.
  • For completely different flavors, try this 5-Minute Keto Curried Tuna Salad. It’s an easy way to spice up your lunch, without making it too complicated.

Amp Up Your Party Menu With a Ketogenic Side Dish 

So, you’re having a barbecue and you’re planning on serving juicy steaks for a Keto-friendly entree. But what about the sides? You don’t want them to just be Keto - you want everything to be insanely delicious, too.

Start with these 3 amazing recipes and your guests will line up and beg for seconds!

  • Easy Keto Egg Salad - This one has been a huge hit at my BBQ’s. Pay attention to the cooking time so that you’ll get the perfect eggs for it.
  • There’s no such thing as picky eaters when you’re serving these Keto Garlic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts! Even the most devoted Brussels sprouts haters will be converted with this yummy recipe.
  • Chicken salad is an all-time favorite side dish, and these 25 picnic-perfect Keto chicken salad recipes will make you stick to your Ketogenic diet while enjoying it.

Ketogenic Salad Recipes For Bigger Hunger 

You can choose a salad even when you need a little more than just a side dish. I love enjoying salads for dinner, too! How about something like:

  • Keto Greek Meatballs Salad - This recipe will make you feel like you’re dining in an authentic, Greek restaurant by the Mediterranean Sea!
  • Keto Buddha Bowl - One of my faves; you can change it up every time you make it, so it never gets boring. If you decide to make changes, you can use our Keto Macro Calculator to track your macros.
  • Don’t forget to make some Keto Salad Dressing to go with your salads.
