Salads are a great summer option. When the weather heats up, no one wants to be spending time in the kitchen with the oven on or cooking over the stovetop. This keto chicken salad uses Asian flavours and konjac noodles and has a delicious freshness.
Keto Chicken Salad
The combination of fresh zingy herbs and creamy peanut butter make for a tasty salad dressing. Combined with the marinated chicken and crunchy vegetables this is such a satisfying meal. It really hits the spot when you have that craving for some Asian flavours.
Tips for keto chicken salad
If you prefer, you could substitute zucchini noodles for the konjac noodles, although this would increase the carbs. We find the konjac noodles are so quick and easy to have available in the pantry.
Swap out any of the vegetables for any other low carb options you may have available. We chose these ones specifically for the crunch and the radishes have a great peppery flavour.
You can swap the chicken for prawns or pork if you prefer. It would even be great with some boiled eggs.
If you prefer to avoid peanut butter you can swap it out for almond or macadamia butter if you prefer.
