When the weather feels like summer it’s salad season, and you only have to peek into the Salads Index to see that I’m a huge fan of salads. So the hard thing about recommending Low-Carb and Keto Salads for Summer Dinners was narrowing it down, and I still ended up with 20 different salads to help you enjoy salad dinners all summer long!

I focused on salads that I’d eat for the entire meal, although some also make a great side dish. I love chicken salads so there are quite a few salads that use chicken, but you’ll also find salads here with shrimp, tuna, eggs, salami, bacon, ground turkey, Italian Sausage, and plenty of salads with different types of cheese!

And I now have nutritional information for any recipe on the blog and that adds the option to rate the recipe, so if you try (or have tried) any of these favorite salads please leave a rating or a comment and let me know how you like them! Just click the recipe title under the photo to see the complete recipe for that salad. And I hope there’s a summer salad here you might like to try soon for dinner!

  3. Hi Kalyn,

    I’ve been following your blog for quite some time.  Yours was the first blog site I put in my cooking favorites.  I have enjoyed many of your recipes.  I especially need your help when I fall off the low carb wagon, like I did recently.  We spend two weeks on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Who could resist all of that pasta and pizza? Now I am having my kitchen remodeled.  What a mess!  I am gathering all of your easiest recipes to help my husband and I get back to being healthy.  Thank you so much for all of your delicious suggestions.

    • Hi Teddi,
      How fun to get a comment like this. I am so glad the recipes have been helpful for you. And I know about falling off the low-carb wagon. Italy is definitely the place to do it! The important thing is to get back on again!

  4. Fantastic collection of salads! Now, which one to make first?

  5. Yes! The best low carb salads! I was looking for this forever! Thank you!
