20 Favorite Low-Carb Salads for Summer
These 20 Favorite Low-Carb Salads for Summer are recipes I make for parties all summer long. And Summer is almost here, so see Salad Recipes for more summer foods!
These 20 Favorite Low-Carb Salads for Summer are some of my most-repeated summer salads, and what a hard time I had narrowing it down to 20! If you look through the Salad Recipes on the blog it’s pretty obvious that I’m a huge salad fan, but this post has the favorite salads I make over and over for summer parties or dinners.
Are you the kind of cook who always makes your favorite recipe for a summer get-together, or do you like to try new things when you’re taking something to a party? For me, the answer is “It depends.” Probably my Family Favorite Shrimp and Macaroni Salad is the salad I’ve taken most often to Denny family get-togethers (definitely NOT low-carb, but often requested by my family), but when I have new favorites on the blog I do like to try those out on the family as well. If you’re looking for a taste-tested salad to try out for a summer party, I hope you’ll try one of my favorites!
I use low-carb pita bread to make this Fattoush Lebanese Salad with Sumac and Pita Chips, and there’s no doubt that when it’s summer and I have fresh mint, fresh parsley, and garden tomatoes I’ll be making this salad. This might even be my number one pick for summer salads!
Al’s Famous Hungarian Cucumber Salad (from my Hungarian friend Al) is one of the most popular low-carb summer salads on the blog, and this is not to be missed!
The Feta and fried almonds are the perfect accent for the still-crisp broccoli in this Barely-Blanched Broccoli Salad with Feta and Fried Almonds.
Go easy on the tomatoes for the lowest carbs if you like, but this American Greek Salad is definitely one of my long-time faves for a summer salad!
This Crunchy Napa Cabbage Asian Slaw with Sugar Snap Peas, Radishes, Almonds, and Cilantro is one salad where I think you can leave out the cilantro if you’re not a fan.
There are so many of my favorite summer flavors in this Cucumber and Avocado Salad with Lime, Mint, and Feta!
I never especially liked egg salad until I tried this Low-Carb and High Protein Avocado Egg Salad! This is completely a wow.
This Peperoncini Chopped Salad with Romaine, Peppers, and Feta is a favorite of a few members of my extended family, and I’ve made this often for parties.
As soon as garden cucumbers show up I start making this Easy Low-Carb Cucumbers Caesar, and this ridiculously easy salad only has three ingredients!
No-Pasta Low-Carb Salad with Zucchini, Italian Sausage, Red Peppers, and Olives has all my favorite pasta salad ingredients without the pasta!
I love cucumbers and Feta cheese, so this Cucumber and Radish Salad with Feta, Red Wine Vinegar, and Buttermilk Dressing is high on my list!
Shrimp Salad is a summer classic, and this Lemony Shrimp Salad with Avocado, Heart of Palm, and Feta is really a wow!
Low-Carb Loaded Cauliflower Mock Potato Salad has been a huge hit on Kalyn’s Kitchen, and for good reason because this salad is a hit with anyone I make it for. YUM!
Low-Carb Marinated Cauliflower Antipasto Salad is another cauliflower salad that has a lot of fans. Don’t skip the step of marinating the cauliflower!
This Marinated Zucchini Salad with Olives, Artichokes, and Red Pepper is another one I’ve made often for family parties.
Another great salad with Greek flavors is this Low-Carb Greek Peperoncini Chicken Salad. I could eat this for lunch over and over when the weather is hot!
Lettuce-Free Keto Cobb Salad has all the best flavors of Cobb Salad without the lettuce. You can use less tomatoes for even fewer carbs if you prefer.
Low-Carb Southwest Chicken Salad with Chipotle Ranch Dressing can be dinner on a hot summer night!
I’m not going to lie, it’s partly the pine nuts that makes me love this Low-Carb Curried Chicken Salad with Asparagus and Pine Nuts so much! If you like these ingredients, I promise you’ll love this salad!
And last of all, this Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm, Olives, Red Pepper, and Feta is a salad that just screams summer! Grab some green beans at the Farmer’s Market if you don’t have a garden and make this tasty salad!
I’d love to hear about it in the comments if one of these salads is going to be on the menu at your house this summer!
