Almost 50 low carb salads!
There are so many salad recipes on this site because as you may already know I am a big salad eater. It’s rare when I don’t have at least 1 salad a day. It’s also a great way to keep things low carb and still have great taste. Two of my other low carb favorites are my bacon blue cheese burger salad and my taco cobb salad. I have almost 50 salad recipes on this blog!
Broccoli salad ingredients
I used both broccoli and cauliflower to give this a little more contrast but you can use all broccoli if you wish or all cauliflower. The other ingredients are red onion, cheddar cheese, bacon and pecans. The dressing is a combination of mayo, apple cider vinegar and Swerve sweetener.
So this recipe is pretty straight forward. You chop up your veggies and add them to a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix mayo, apple cider vinegar and Swerve (or other sweetener). Add the rest of your ingredients and the dressing and mix well. That’s it. Refrigerate until you are ready to eat.

NOTE: I added pecans to give this salad more crunch but you can use pumpkin seeds, almonds or just omit them if you aren’t crazy about nuts.
