A big green salad full of leafy vegetables is a great lunch or dinner option on the keto diet. Add some protein with grilled chicken or steak, and some healthy fats with nuts or avocados. But watch out for sneaky sugars and carbs that could be hidden in your store-bought dressing!
Storebought Keto Salad Dressings
Yes, it’s true. Most store-bought salad dressings contain carbohydrates and added sugar. But, if you know how to read the nutrition labels, you can find keto-friendly salad dressings to buy online and at the grocery store.
Here are several low-carb, sugar-free salad dressing options that you can use to dress your next keto salad.
1. Primal Kitchen Greek Dressing
Primal Kitchen makes a classic Greek salad dressing with healthy avocado oil, organic herbs and zesty spices. Of course, it’s delicious on Greek Salads with tomatoes, onions, and feta cheese. But you can also use it to add incredible flavor to grilled meats and veggies.

Ranch is my all-time favorite salad dressing. And this ranch dressing l is such an upgrade over the other ranch dressings I’ve tried.
Most store-bought salad dressings are made with industrial seed and vegetable oils like canola, sunflower, corn and soy oil– but Primal Kitchen brand uses avocado oil in their dressings and vinaigrettes.

Blue Cheese dressing has a pungent, salty, and tangy flavor that you either love or hate.

Ken’s Chunky Blue Cheese dressing is a classic low-carb dressing that you should be able to find at any grocery chain.
