A vibrant green salad full of crunchy veggies is a great lunch or dinner choice on the keto diet. All you need to do is add some protein — like grilled chicken or steak — and a delicious keto salad dressing.

  1. These recipes are perfect! I’m going to make a salad tomorrow. It’s so hard to choose what salad dressing though. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I’ve been vegetarian for 45 years. Can’t figure out if I can do this, because it’s restricted and most of you are depending on meat, fish. And it’s so new, I’ve seen so many fad diets come and go. They all has the newest science backing their diets. And I hate coconut. Still reading up on different websites. Some of the foods you can eat are also expensive. Like berries.

  3. My doctor put me on Keto/Atkins a month ago, telling me only to use Olive Oil or Avocado Oil. I researched grocery store brands and they have canola, vegetable etc in their dressings so this sight has really helped me. I am going to try several. Thanks for making this transition a bit easier.
