Low Carb Salads and Salad Dressing Recipes
Healthy Salad Dressings
It can be hard to find healthy salad dressing in the store. Here are tips for finding it, or easy ways to make your own.
Cauliflower "Potato" Salad
I made quite a few versions before coming up with a cauliflower salad that really is a lot like potato salad, but low carb.
Low-Carb Taco Salad
You don't need tortilla chips for a great taco salad - this low-carb version of a taco salad has all the flavors, and it's easy to put together.
Low Carb Broccoli Salad with Bacon
Most traditional broccoli salad recipes have a fair amount of sugar, due to raisins as well as sugar in the dressing. I've attempted to reduce the sugar, but keep the same salty-sweet flavor combination of the classic cold broccoli salad, with bits of bacon and sunflower seeds.
Ranch Style Cole Slaw
Creamy, ranch-style cole slaw, great with barbeque.
Greek Lemon Garlic Salad Dressing
This easy Greek lemon-based salad dressing can be used on salads, other vegetables, or as a yummy marinade for chicken.
Salmon Salad - An Alternative to Tuna
Salmon has many nutritional advantages over tuna and it's tastier, in my opinion. Try this alternative to tuna salad.
Low-Carb Four-Bean Salad
This low-carb version of the traditional 3 bean or 4 bean salad makes two adjustments - it is sugar-free and the beans are less starchy ones.
Warm Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing
This version of the classic warm (or wilted) spinach salad can easily be made into a meal by adding chopped cooked chicken, turkey, or even fish or tofu.
Watermelon Salad with Cucumber and Mint
The combination of flavors in this watermelon salad is so refreshing and delicious. A hit at potlucks!
Tuna Walnut Salad
Walnuts and a touch of cinnamon dress up your everyday tuna salad!
Caprese Pasta Salad - Basil and Tomato Salad
This pasta salad has all the elements of the Italian caprese salad. I use shirataki noodles to make it low carb.
Strawberry Chicken Salad
This is a quintessential summer dinner salad -- lovely, light, and different. Dress with strawberry vinaigrette dressing and you have a real treat on a hot summer night.
A yummy, healthy salad dressing made with fresh or frozen cranberries.
Easy Blue Cheese Dressing
You can whip this blue cheese dressing up in two minutes. There's absolutely no reason to pour the watered-down bottled dressing with very little blue cheese in it on your lovely salad!
This dressing is good on any green salad for something different. I especially like it with Strawberry Chicken Salad.
