Tips for Perfecting Your Keto Salad

  • Customizations: Feel free to add or substitute any of your favorite low-carb vegetables. Zucchini, radishes, or even a handful of fresh herbs can elevate the salad’s flavor profile.
  • Meal Prep: You can prepare the vegetables and grill the chicken in advance to save time during busy weekdays. Store them in separate containers in the fridge and assemble just before serving.
  • Dressing Variations: While a simple lemon-olive oil vinaigrette is classic, you can also experiment with keto-friendly dressings such as Primal Kitchens Fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill) for a burst of flavordressing for a richer taste.
