Keto Broccoli Salad is a simple recipe that will please a crowd. Full of nutrients with just a touch of sweetness, this is the best broccoli salad recipe for staying low carb!
Broccoli is my favorite of the keto veggies because it is so versatile. Broccoli can be eaten raw, steamed, fried, baked... and each time it tastes just a little bit different. This low-carb broccoli salad is one of the easiest side dishes for the keto diet. Perfect alongside a summer bbq or fall turkey, this low-carb salad is a crowd favorite.
For this Keto Broccoli Salad, I actually left my fresh broccoli completely raw - but you may choose to steam or blanch the broccoli some to your desired tenderness. To blanch your broccoli, add to boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Once cooked you can cool it down quickly by adding it to a bowl of ice water. I prefer that crunch so that is why I used raw broccoli washed well.
This Keto Broccoli Salad Recipe is so versatile and you can add or take away ingredients to better fit your macros. Adding in sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds is a great way to add vitamin E, magnesium, and protein while adding a splash of apple cider vinegar can help regulate your blood sugar while adding a tangy dressing flavor.
I also cheated a bit and used precooked bacon for this sweet keto broccoli salad. I will forever have my Sams Club Membership solely for the huge packages of Black Label Precooked Bacon. In just 45 seconds my bacon was ready - you cannot beat that.
With precooked bacon and leaving the broccoli raw, it took less than 5 minutes to put this delicious keto salad together. Then just let it chill in the fridge and voila! A perfect keto side dish!
If you are using this as a ketogenic diet meal prep, you may want to keep the bacon separated to keep it crispy. Just make sure to keep this delicious salad in an airtight container in the fridge until you are ready to enjoy it. This low carb salad is the perfect side dish for a protein of your choice.
