Keto Greek Salad with KETO Greek Dressing

Sharing is caring!

This Keto Greek Salad is a great lunch salad or starter appetizer with Keto Greek Dressing drizzled on top.

While I am on the Keto diet, I find myself eating a ton of meat and skimping on veggies. This greek salad gives me a nice punch of awesome vegetables without going over my net carbs.

Traditional Greek salad is the most popular and well known Greek dishes in Greece. They grow it locally so they get it from their yards.

It has a ton of health benefits because it is mostly fruits and veggies with a Greek salad dressing that is mostly a spiced up version of oil and vinegar.

This recipe is sugar free and a gluten free recipe as well.

How Many Carb per Serving?

This salad only has 4 net carbs per serving. You can easily add this side dish to your keto diet.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

Greek Salad Recipe

Shopping List

  • Kalamata Olives
  • Feta Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Red Onions
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes

You can also add some of these other ingredients. They are sometimes served in greek salads here in the US.

  • Bell Peppers – Red, Yellow, and/or Green Peppers.
  • Black Olives
  • Greek Olives

Kalamata Olives

Olives are one of my favorite snacks on the Keto Diet. I love eating olives because they are an amazing source of fats on Keto.

Olives can be eaten on their own or added to low carb recipes like salads, as a topping on steak, or in dips.

Feta Cheese

You can get some much needed calcium from adding Feta Cheese to your greek salads.

Feta Cheese is made with goat milk rather than cow milk because in Greece they have a lot of goats.

In Greece, they give you a block of Feta Cheese on top of the salad rather than cutting it up or crumbling it like here in the US.

Tomatoes 

This amazing fruit is keto friendly. It’s one of the few Keto friendly fruits out there. 

Normally, most fruits pack a whammy of carbs and are a no no if you want to achieve Ketosis. 

The cherry tomatoes seem to the best way to go for this Greek salad because it is one less thing you have to cut up. 

Also, apparently you should steer clear of the grape tomatoes and vine ripened tomatoes (also know as Campari tomatoes) because they have a higher carb content than the other tomatoes at the grocery store. 

Your best bet for tomatoes on the Keto Diet are Roma Tomatoes (aka Plum Tomatoes), Cherry Tomatoes, and Beef Steak Tomatoes. 

Red Onions 

They are known for higher carb content. That is why I limited the red onions in this recipe. 

This recipe is stills extremely low in carbs I even with adding the red onions. What is a Greek salad without red onions?

If you want to cut the carbs even more, you can swap red onions for green onions. They are much more keto friendly. 

Cucumbers

We love using English Cucumbers over the smaller slicing cucumbers because they do not need to be deseeded and peeled to cut down on the bitter flavor.

English cucumbers are not as bitter as the slicing cucumbers.

I made the mistake thinking that all cucumbers are created equal and paid for it when I did not peel and deseed the slicing cucumber. It causes serious gas if you do not deseed and peel the slicing cucumber.

You can tell the difference between the English cucumber and the slicing cucumber in the grocery store by their length and packaging.

English cucumber are usually sold wrapped in tight plastic to protect their skin.
