Summer Side Dish
Not only is this Keto Broccoli Salad low carb, but it’s also easy to toss together hours before you will be eating it AND your kitchen will stay cool as there’s no cooking.
It’s best to snip the broccoli right below the bushy part. This little tree part is called the floret. Keeping the floret small bite sized makes for easier chewing.
Same goes for the red onion in this recipe. Because this salad calls for raw red onions it’s best to slice the onion paper thin. I use a mandolin to slice my red onion thin.
Just a simple mix of mayo, Ranch dressing, and a splash of apple cider vinegar makes the dressing in this Keto Broccoli Salad.
Toss and Serve
Once you have all the ingredients in a large bowl simply pour the dressing over the bowl. Moreover, tossing the ingredients will coat every bit of the florets while simultaneously mixing in the juices from the red onion, bacon, and cheddar cheese.
After mixing the Keto Broccoli Salad, simply cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Can be stored in the fridge overnight. However, this salad is best served within 4-6 hours of preparing.
