This Keto Salad is super easy to prepare, tastes amazing and is ideal for anyone following a ketogenic diet. I got into sardines after they were brought to my attention as a keto friendly option in a podcast and since then I’ve been hooked. They are packed with vitamins and minerals and, important to a ketogenic diet, are high in fats and pretty much zero carbs. Personally I go for John West Sardines, packed in Olive Oil but I actually drain the oil as I don’t like the taste so much; the recipe assumes you’ll do the same for the calorie calculations.

Ingredients

  • Big bowl of mixed green salad (I use Lettuce, Spinach, Red Onions, Cucumber, Cherry Toms and Red Peppers).
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 splash (about 1 teaspoon) balsamic vinegar
  • 40g Full Fat Cheese (I use Gouda but use your favourite, as long as it’s FULL FAT 🙂

Directions

  1. Drizzle the olive oil onto the salad
  2. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar
  3. Drain the sardines and add them
  4. Chop the cheese into squares and add
  5. Eat and make your friends jealous 🙂

  • Would love to have a go on the keto diet but cheese and fish try as as might just can’t stand the taste of fish. Hope your keeping well lee

  • Alright mate, I’m looking to get leaner – Is it sustainable when your training regularly ? I burn about 8-900 calories extra 5 days / week.

  • What’s this all about then?
