Keto-friendly Berry Vinaigrette

Here I am with another Keto-friendly recipe. It’s still hot and humid, and we’re melting, as is the rest of North America I’m sure. So a cool crisp salad with fresh berries, topped with a delicious fruity salad dressing hits the spot. Sometimes I even add a little bit of cooked diced chicken for a heartier salad.

As I mentioned in my post Low Carb Fruit Crisp, we are trying to cut way back on carbs. The Berry Vinaigrette in a recent post is about 8 carbs per 2 tablespoon serving size, which is actually more than double the store-bought French and Italian dressings in my fridge. My bottled Poppy Seed dressing had 5 per serving. With the substitutions, this Keto-friendly Vinaigrette is about 1 carb per serving. Stick with berries to keep the carb count of your salad low.

I already had bags of frozen fruit in the freezer, so I just pulled out a few strawberries for this dressing. The other ingredients are always in my cupboard anyway AND it only takes a minute or so to whip up a wonderful fresh tasting salad dressing.

I didn’t realize there was such a difference in vinegar taste. The other version was made with Balsamic vinegar, which I had not had before to my knowledge. This one is made with Apple Cider Vinegar, which is much stronger tasting to me. I ended up adding an extra teaspoon of Splenda. It was still very good, just not as smooth-tasting.
