Keto Chinese Cabbage Salad

Keto Chinese Cabbage Salad

I love Chinese flavours, especially when they are fresh and vibrant like in this crunchy Keto Chinese Cabbage Salad.

This easy salad takes some plain old veg and really livens it up with a zesty, flavour packed dressing and lots of texture. This is the only way I can get my husband to eat cucumber, he says it tastes like dirt!

Whereas in this tasty Keto Chinese Salad, it is mixed with that delicious well balanced dressing.

You can throw in other vegetables that you have on hand, just remember to always check those carbs as some vegetables and salad ingredients can have sneaky carbs you might not expect.

Carrots are a good example, with 10% carbs. Sure, you can use a few carrots if you like, just be conscious that the carbs are there.

Best served fresh, or if you having it the next day for lunch, keep the dressing separate until you are ready to eat it.

If you want to add some extra protein, you could incorporate some boiled eggs, chicken or a tin of tuna.

Keto Chinese Pulled Pork is a super easy, simple dish that gives BIG chinese flavours without the sugar! Slow cooker / crock pot cooking is the best for this easy Keto Pulled Pork recipe. Goes perfectly with Keto Chinese Cabbage salad #easyketo #ketorecipes #ketogenicrecipe

I also love serving this salad with my Roast Pork Belly or with a side of Keto Coconut Rice.

This is one of those dishes that you can serve up ‘feast style’ – prepare everything, layout your Keto Chinese Cabbage Salad, Keto Pulled Pork, Keto Coconut Rice and you have a feast for everyone to dig into.

You could also serve some Keto San Choi Bao for a delicious entree and get everyone excited about what is to come!

If you were making this salad ahead, I’d recommend keeping the dressing and avocado separate until you are ready to serve.

Enjoy! x

Questions! By large red chili, are you referring to a hot pepper or a sweet pepper? Also, I don't have garlic paste or ginger paste...if I substitute fresh grated, would I use the same amount?

Oh and yes fine to use fresh grated, 1 tsp = 1 garlic clove and 1cm of grated ginger.

Hmm! I had to think about this - in Australia we call 'sweet peppers' capsicums so it must be a hot pepper to you - eg. one of those small spicy ones.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I had to substitute a few ingredients but really liked the end result. I took it to our fellowship meal at church today. I was glad it came together quickly. Thanks!
