These Keto Salad Recipes for Holiday Dinners are great for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but enjoy these tasty low-carb salads all winter! Think of these ideas whenever you need a delicious salad idea for a special meal!
The annual food lover’s countdown to the holidays is well under way in most households! I know some people would be happy with just turkey, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie every year for Thanksgiving dinner and maybe don’t venture too far out of their normal for Christmas dinner either.
But for those of you who like to try new holiday recipes every year, I’ve been sharing suggestions on Facebook (are you following me there?) For a holiday meal I’ll definitely indulge a bit, but I also try to have some delicious carb-conscious options.
And I think every Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner needs a special salad as part of the menu, so here’s a great collection of Keto Salad Recipes for Holiday Dinners. All these low-carb winter salads are favorite salads that I’ve made many many times, and each one is a bit more special than the usual salads you make for a week-night dinner!
What makes these salads great for the holidays?
I’d call these winter salads because they use salad ingredients that are readily available during the winter months! Of course many of these salads would be great in the summer too, but you won’t find many summery ingredients like tomatoes and cucumbers in the salads featured here.
What kinds of salads are featured here?
In this collection you’ll find salads with artichoke hearts, arugula, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, green beans, kale, lettuce, and spinach.
How do you get the complete recipe?
Just click any recipe title to see the complete recipe on the blog, and enjoy!
Keto Salad Recipes with Artichoke Hearts:
This Artichoke Heart Salad has roasted red peppers, capers, red onion, and basil, and this is perfect for a special meal.
Artichoke Antipasto Salad is so delicious and ridiculously easy to make. The fresh basil for the dressing might be a splurge in the winter, but use basil pesto if you don’t have fresh basil.
Keto Salad Recipes with Arugula:
Not everyone loves the peppery flavor of arugula. But arugula fans like me will devour Kalyn’s Favorite Baby Arugula Salad. I’d never get tired of this salad, and I especially like the addition of pine nuts!
Another option for arugula fans is this gorgeous Arugula Salad with Feta.
