Don’t forget to get those greens in! 🥦🥒🥑🥗Fiber is still an important nutrient goal to hit every day – especially on a keto diet!
This salad is loaded with fiber, but still has low net carbs making it the perfect salad for keto.
I love tahini. I grew up surrounded by Middle Eastern food and my love for tahini grew. It has a tasty, creamy flavor that can be added to dips, dressings and most famously, hummus! Getting older, I was pleased to find out that not only does tahini taste amazing, but it is SO GOOD for you!
The reasons to eat tahini for health are endless so I’ll just mention of a few of the standouts. It’s full of healthy fats likes omega 3’s that lower cholesterol and fight against inflammation. It’s also a delicious source of fiber, protein, and vitamins like B and E.
Tahini is an immune booster by being rich in iron, copper, zinc, and selenium. Not only that but Tahini is also loaded with magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium (which are really needed in the keto diet!). Like coconut oil, tahini also improves skin, heart, and bone health. It’s basically an undercover super food!
Dill Tahini Green Salad
What You Need:
1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
2 heads broccoli, florets trimmed (feel free to leave raw or slightly steamed; cooked but still with crunch)
1 avocado, cut in half and then thinly sliced
4 eggs, hard boiled for about 6 minutes and then quartered
Pink salt & pepper
2 heaping tbsp pepita (optional)
What To Do:
Combine the dressing ingredients and set to the side.
Combine all the veggies then toss in the dressing until everything is well coated. Add the eggs on top and enjoy!
Note: this does not make a ton of dressing. If you prefer your salad dressed a little more, the salad dressing doubles perfectly!
