A collection of easy low carb salads that are perfect for summer. Salads are also perfect for sharing when getting together with friends and family.
I’m always looking for quick dishes to enjoy over the summer. Easy low carb salads are a favorite during the warmer weather months. They don’t take a lot of time to prepare and are usually eaten cold.
There’s also a lot of activity going with the kids out of school and outdoor picnics. It’s a long holiday weekend here with Monday being the 4th of July so we’ll be hosting an outdoor celebration with friends. You can bet there will be a few easy low carb salads on the menu!
Most of the time, I don’t bother with a recipe when making easy low carb salads for lunch or dinner. I just grab some lettuce greens and top them with low carb toppings. Some of my favorite things to add to a salad are hard boiled eggs, grilled meat, cucumbers, olives, and cheese.
Although most people like to use salad dressing, I often leave it out. When ordering a salad at a restaurant, I rarely add dressing because a lot of them are made with sugar. It’s difficult to determine the carb count so it’s just easier not to eat it.
