Keto Broccoli Salad

Bacon and broccoli are a magical combination, and in this chilled keto broccoli salad, they come together with a tangy, fresh dressing that’s perfect for summer BBQs. Depending on how many people I’m serving, I’ll sometimes make a double batch because the flavors come together even more when stored in the fridge overnight and is great the next day! I love this alternative keto salad for meal prep too – it works great on the side will grilled chicken that you can prep on Sunday and enjoy for lunch throughout the week! We love this with our favorite burgers and keto french fries!

Benefits of Broccoli and Why It’s a Keto (and Ketology) Superfood

Broccoli is a nutritional superfood packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. One of the main reasons I always have raw broccoli in my kitchen is it’s a great source of Vitamin C, which as we age, we have to make sure we get adequate vitamin C because it’s a potent antioxidant and is amazing for skin health and immune function. It?s also vital for collagen synthesis – which we lose as we age and helps regenerate connective tissue, bones, teeth and your small blood vessels.

The crunch of the fresh broccoli with the almonds and creamy dressing will make this keto broccoli salad a favorite in your keto recipe list for sure!
