5 Ingredient Keto Salad

5 Ingredient Keto Salad

Simple salads like this one are my go-to meal when I don’t have time to cook. Technically it’s made with eight as these are used in most savoury recipes.

I made my keto & paleo salad with crispy bacon and chicken breast cooked in a skillet and then finished off in the oven. If you’re short on time, simply use leftover rotisserie chicken. I also used avocado which is the key ingredient that will provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and electrolytes to keep keto-flu at bay.

Finally, I drizzled some ranch dressing on top. You can make your own or you can use a ready made option like Primal Kitchen made with avocado oil and no additives.
