17 Keto Salad Dressings (keto, low-carb + paleo)

16 Keto Salad Dressings (paleo, too!) #keto #lowcarb #highfat

A salad just isn’t a salad without the dressing. Am I right? Well, here you can take a look at all the salad dressings that I’ve found that are not only low-carb and keto, but paleo with dairy-free options as well.

Okay, let’s get real. Salads can be boring (gasp!). Especially if you’re trying to stay low-carb by avoiding all of those pesky sugary carb-heavy dressings.

Salads don’t have to be boring, though! There are so many variations that you can do, allowing the salad to be your canvas as you create a masterpiece of keto art! It’s all about having fun with it. If you’re not having fun, then something is wrong.

Another great thing about salads is the fact that they can be as easy or complicated as you wish. It just takes a few simple ingredients to throw a salad together. Of course, you could go a little crazy with it too with an all-out elaborate salad meal, too. Whatever you decide to do, always try to have fun with it.

Creativity can be hard work, so if you think that the meal planning is taking out all the joy out of your keto life, then you should check out my Balanced Keto Weekly Meal Plans. It takes the stress out of the process, so you can focus on being happy and healthy in your fat-fueled body!

Tzatziki

While this is delicious on meat or fish, it is also delightful as a keto salad dressing. To keep it dairy-free, coconut cream (i.e., cream from the top of a chilled container of full-fat coconut milk) should do the trick.

It wouldn’t be a complete list without some keto balsamic vinaigrette. This dressing recipe sounds delicious and keeps those carbs at bay!

Creamy Ginger Avocado Dressing

Keep the ginger coming! If you like a little spice, this is where you can crank up the heat. However, if you prefer the milder option, you can simply de-seed the serrano pepper instead. Enjoy!

  1. I have been contemplating trying the Primal Kitchen ranch dressing for a while but was hesitant to buy a relatively expensive bottle of dressing just to end up hating it, and have it sit in my refrigerator (so I can toss it 3 months later). Thanks to the recommendation on this site I finally worked up the courage and ordered the sample package (1 bottle of each Ranch, Greek, Honey mustard). They are all delicious! Granted the taste of the ranch is not exactly Hidden Valley Ranch but it was absolutely delightful and creamy on my salad. Definitely a new favorite packaged salad dressing! Thank you LEANNE! Had I not seen it here I would still be trying to decide whether I should give it a shot….

  2. For the Tzaziki dressing, I used Primal Avocado mayo instead of Greek Yogurt (or coconut cream-sorry can’t stand the taste of coconut in foods where it doesn’t belong), and it was absolutely delish! It goes beyond putting it on salads….anything grilled or roasted is great with it too!

  3. These all sound great. I can’t wait to try them. My daughter can’t eat mustard right now though. What would you substitute for the mustard in these recipes?

    • Hmm, maybe apple cider vinegar for the tanginess? Horseradish might work well in some recipes, too!
