Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Let this dish sit in the fridge for an hour or so before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend and become totally fabulous.
  • Don’t like almonds? Try this salad with toasted pecans, sunflower seeds, or your favorite nuts.
  • Feel free to add a bit more (or less) So Nourished sugar substitute to the dressing to get the perfect blend of sweet and tangy for your taste buds.
  • Don’t forget the bacon! I like to cook it in strips and then chop it, but you can also chop it first and then fry it up to a crisp.

What To Serve With This Ah-Mazing Broccoli Salad

I love anything grilled with this salad, especially fun-to-eat kabobs, but it’s also delish with a simple roasted pork tenderloin, or delish keto seafood dishes.

Is this salad freezer friendly?

Unfortunately, no. This dish is best eaten fresh!

How many carbs are in this keto Broccoli Salad with Bacon?

There are 6 net carbs in each very generous serving.

How long does it take to make this salad?

This salad takes 12 minutes or less, if you’re quick!

Is broccoli keto?

Yes! Not only is broccoli loaded with nutrition, it’s high in fiber and low in carbs, making it a great choice for keto diets.
