Recipe FAQs:

How many net carbs does this keto salad provide?

One serving of this keto salad with bacon and eggs has only 8.1 grams of net carbs. We got this result by subtracting the dietary fiber (3 grams) from the total carbs (11.1 grams).

What salad vegetables are keto-friendly?

Keto-friendly salad greens include iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, loose leaf lettuce, mache greens, and arugula. Do check the number of carbs per serving (with each type of salad green) to keep your salad strictly keto.

What kind of salad dressing is keto-friendly?

The best low-carb dressing is the one you can make at home simply because you have more control over the ingredients. For example, you could combine mayo and mustard for a “mayomust” dressing. Another delicious keto dressing would be a caesar salad dressing that combines mayo, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste, chopped garlic, and salt and pepper.

Obviously, you can get a store-bought dressing but always check the nutrition facts label for the number of carbs per serving.

For how long can this keto salad sit out?

This salad can last for up to two hours when left at room temperature. If you’re planning a make-ahead salad, keep it in the fridge overnight (without mixing the dressing into the salad) so you can eat it the next day.
