Keto Broccoli Salad is a low carb salad full of bacon and cheese with a touch of red bell and jalapeno pepper for that sweet heat touch. This easy to make, cold broccoli salad is sure to become your most favorite salad recipe this summer and is great for picnics, reunions, and potlucks year round!
This revised summertime favorite recipe cured my craving as well as satisfied my addiction to that sweet heat that I love so much! I can’t resist the smoky bacon, spicy jalapeno, cheese, and slightly sweet mayo dressing combination in this salad. I just know you are going to love it as much as we do!
Take this Broccoli Salad to your next picnic to help you stay on the Keto track!
When eating Keto, it can be difficult to go to any gathering where it is potluck style. You just don’t know what other people are putting in their recipes, unless you know them really well and know what kind of diets they follow (if any!). This salad just made your picnic/potluck dining away from home life easier and nobody will know the difference!
This is really easy to make the night before and even easier if you buy the pre-cooked bacon. Zapping that bacon in the microwave for 30 seconds without the mess of baking or frying is a huge thing for me!
The most time it takes to put this recipe together is what time it takes to clean and chop your veggies. I have even been known to buy the pre-chopped veggies to make it even quicker to assemble.
With this combination of ingredients, you will never miss the sugar or the dried cranberries. The salty, crisp cooked bacon, cheese, sweet and hot peppers bring together that satisfaction that will make this your new favorite summer dish!
I guarantee if you take this recipe to a potluck or a picnic this summer, everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
I like to make this the day before we are actually going to eat it. That doesn’t guarantee I will be able to keep my spoon out of the bowl though. It is that addicting! Anyway, make it the night before to give the flavors time to come together. I promise you that it does not get soggy by sitting overnight!
