Caesar Salad

If I had to choose one of my favorite go-to foods while I’m trying to cut carbs, it would have to be a Caesar salad — you just can’t go wrong with the crisp romaine lettuce, crispy bacon and the creamy, garlicky dressing that I absolutely love. Our Caesar salad dressing is one of the best I’ve tried and it’s so easy to make. Use as a dip as well, this dressing makes the hit list for best keto salad dressing!

Ingredients

Caesar Dressing

Caesar Salad

  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce chopped
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 cup or more Shredded Parmesan not shelf stable stuff

Instructions

Caesar Dressing

  • Add all dressing ingredients (except Parmesan cheese) to the bowl of a food process or in a blender. Process on high until the garlic is minced down and the mixture is smooth. Add in the cheese and pulse until it is incorporated but not completely smooth. Pour into a glass bottle/jar and store in the fridge (up to 2 weeks) until ready to use.

Caesar Salad

  • Place a skillet or griddle on the stove over medium heat. In a mixing bowl, add the chicken breasts, avocado oil, salt, and pepper. Stir to evenly coat. When the skillet/griddle is hot, add the chicken and cook, turning as needed, until fully cooked through and no longer pink. Remove from skillet and let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Divide the romaine lettuce and spinach evenly between 4 salad bowls. Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan on the lettuce, and top with slices of chicken breast. Drizzle with desired amount of Caesar dressing and eat immediately.

Notes

  • If you prefer more crunch to your Caesar salad (like croutons), we love using Parmesan crackers (like Whisps).

Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing {dairy-free}

Who doesn’t love a tangy poppyseed dressing? But if you’re trying to cut out the dairy and sugar, it can be tough to find a brand that not only tastes good but is good for you too. That’s why I am in love with this creamy (yes, creamy!), dairy-free, poppy seed dressing that tastes amazing on everything! While this recipe does use honey, I’ve given you a great alternative to keep it ultra low carb as well (and still tastes divine). This dressing is perfect for our Chicken Bacon Salad. Enjoy!

This Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing has been in my rotation for quite some time and is a kid-favorite around here. It’s loaded with healthy fats and is especially great for anyone on a Ketogenic diet.

Blue Cheese Dressing

I now give you the salad dressing that packs a serious punch! This is what makes our Cobb salad so delicious. If you’ve been craving the earthy, salty, creamy flavors of blue cheese, then this dressing is for you. Make a batch of spicy chicken wings, this makes a great dip! I give you two options to make it to your liking as well: smooth or chunky. I personally love getting a big chunk of blue cheese in every bite, but my tastes are more adventurous! It is also a great source of healthy fats so feel free to drizzle this blue cheese dressing on anything. I love it on top of a high-quality steak (yum!).

Getting your fat while on a Keto Diet doesn’t need to be difficult, especially with great homemade dressings. This healthy, Keto Blue Cheese dressing is perfect, give it a try!
