Low Carb Salad Inspiration
I like to eat a lot of salads with Low Carb, especially in the warmer months. However, I actually still eat salad a lot during cooler weather and am even trying to grow lettuce on my kitchen windowsill. So basically, rabbits envy me, and it gets to the point where, sometimes, salad does not sound appetizing at all.
So I am always looking for new flavors and different salads to try to keep things interesting.
The other day I threw some leftovers together and made what I thought was a nice salad. Here's hoping it inspires you. Ingredients
-Leftover goat cheese -Scant amount of Craisins, the very last ones in the bag (not low carb, but in small amounts I don't really worry about stuff like that, but if you do, make some LC cranberry sauce for this salad or use fresh raspberries or 1/2 a pear diced--there are lots of low carb fruit options here.) -Pecans -Lettuce -Balsamic Vinaigrette (home made or store bought, just read the label)
Throw together with some lettuce and drizzle with balsamic dressing and voila! a lush salad appears on your plate as if by magic.
