21 ultimate summer low-carb salads for your keto diet
Who said salads had to be dull or repetitive or carb heavy? The ultimate hot summer meal can easily be adapted to a high-fat lifestyle, and by that, we don’t mean two lettuce leaves, three branches of celery, some mushrooms, a ton of olives and even more olive oil (but if that floats your boat…). So whenever you don’t feel like firing up the grill or can’t envision spending the afternoon in the kitchen frying up some deliciousness without dying of heat exhaustion, whip up on of these salad recipes. Suited for your keto lifestyle, fresh and delicious, it is the ultimate summer quick fix that won’t kick you out of ketosis for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And since not all veggies are created equal, pick yours wisely with these far-from-boring delicious summer low-carb salads for your keto diet.
