Low Carb Chef Salad Recipe

 

Let’s face it, although we have billions of low carb food choices and don’t have to subsist on measly little dry and tasteless salads, salads still offer deep nutrition and convenience. Salads make for a quick low carb meal that’s almost brainless, with very little effort required. You take a bag of pre-washed lettuce, tump some lunch meat and cheese on top and slather it in store bought salad dressing. Who needs a recipe for that “delectable” taste treat. Am I right?

But pardon me, there are only so many of “those” types of salads a girl can handle before salad fatigue settles in on the home front and rebellion comes to call. And I won’t even begin to discuss the questionable ingredients in that store bought bottle of dressing (ingredients that go “bump” in the night, like trans fats/partially hydrogenated oils).

Why not take a little bit of extra time and build a dressing from scratch? The Fluffys’ staple House Vinaigrette can be flavored and easily morphed. Simply by changing out the acid, and adding herbs and spices, or a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt, or maybe a few cheese crumbles, you shape-shift the dressing into a new and exciting taste treat. And it takes what? Three minutes? Five max?

Another way to end salad fatigue and wake up or brighten the bowl is by mixing salad greens. Don’t just use one kind of lettuce. Blend lettuces! Add arugula, baby spinach, butter lettuce. Add freshly grown herbs! Tarragon and basil are salad champions, as are flat leaf Italian parsley and cilantro. Thai basil and mint are killer for Asian salads!! For the cost of a pot, a little dirt, and two bucks, you can have a pot of herbs that gives and gives all summer and fall long. And fresh herbs are easy to grow!

 

Keto Chef Salad with Eggs

 

The Turkey Roast Beef Chef Salad is semi-homemade. We bought the turkey and roast beef. Our grocery makes freshly cooked hunks of roast beef and turkey breasts. Both are cooked in herb de Provence with a rosemary kick. Both are fantastic and neither has MSG or other preservatives! Score! So we frequently use these as go-to lunch meats to make weekday lunches easy, brainless, and Fast with a capital F. Even though they are slightly more per pound than other lunch meats, a chef salad like this one still costs less than a car ride through the local drive-thru! And it’s much healthier for you too…oh you know I’m right!

Hope you’ll give this salad and the Fluffys’ House Vinaigrette a test drive then rush back here and give us a full report. We think you will be hooked on the dressing and will permanently break up with your bottled dressing which isn’t doing anything for your health or your meal satisfaction!

Notes

We love salads, but let's face it. Sometimes we just get bored with them! This heaping plate of Turkey and Roast Beef Chef Salad extinguishes salad boredom. By switching up the vinegars (tarragon or champagne vinegar works beautifully with this salad combination), or adding fresh herbs (grown in pots on the patio), we can change each salad according to our whim and fancy! And we can do it on the cheap since growing fresh herbs means flavor for pennies!

Serving Ideas Serve with a big glass of iced tea or sparkling water.
