That’s a bit crazy mix of fruits and veggies, but it’s also quite refreshing, and good choice if you crave something sweet. I know that pineapple is a no-no on keto, but it’s only a few chunks per portion. It’s definitely not everyday meal, but you can have it on the days when your carb intake is very low, or you just want to treat yourself with something sweet – that’s a healthy option 😉 Especially in upcoming spring and summer, when fruits will tempt us with colours and smells.
Iceberg lettuce makes every chunk crunchy, strawberries and pineapple gives sweetness, avocado and olive oil keeps the fats high and pepper spice this up. You can add some pumpkin or sunflower seeds to keep the fats even higher.
crazy keto salad with strawberries
INGREDIENTS (for 1 portion):
· some iceberg lettuce leafes
· few strawberries
· 1 avocado
· few chunks of fresh pineapple
· 1 tbsp olive oil
· pinch of lemon pepper or coarse pepper
Rinse strawberries and iceberg salad leaves. Cut avocado in half, twist and remove the stone using knife or spoon. To remove the skin you can eaither peel it with your fingers, or dice the flesh with the knife, and than scoop out with the spoon. Whatever is easier for you. If avocado is ripe (purple-brownish and soft) it will be very easy to remove the skin with your fingers. If it’s still quite firm it’s better to scoop it out with a spoon.
Now it’s turn for strawberries. Remove the green stem and cut each strawberry in half or quarters if they’re very big. Mix your salad leaves, strawberries, avocado and pineapple chunks with olive oil. Sprinkle with pepper and enjoy.
