Ingredients

Keto Spinach Salad Ingredients

  • 9 - 10 oz fresh spinach
  • 6 ripe strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped

Keto Hot Bacon Dressing Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup bacon fat
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Golden
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup red vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • salt to taste

Instructions

Spinach Salad Instructions:

  • In a large bowl, add fresh baby spinach leaves.
  • Slice strawberries and purple onion.
  • Chop the bacon, then saute it in a skillet until very crisp.
  • Add the strawberries and purple onions to the salad.
  • Sprinkle fresh crumbled feta cheese and chopped boiled egg on top.

Hot Bacon Dressing Instructions:

  • Remove the bacon from the grease and set it aside on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb excess oil, so it continues to crisp. Once it has cooled to the touch, crumble into smaller pieces.
  • Keep 1/3 cup of the bacon grease in the skillet and remove the rest if there is any excess. It should render approx 1/3 cup.
  • Add the fresh minced garlic and chopped onion to the skillet and saute in the bacon grease until the onion is translucent.
  • Add all of the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil uncovered for 5 minutes or until the Low Carb Hot Bacon Dressing reduces, stirring with a whisk to avoid sticking to the pan.
  • Remove from heat, add the crumbled bacon to the dressing, and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • To serve after being refrigerated, you will need to rewarm and add additional water since the bacon grease will become firm in the fridge.

Notes

The sugar alcohols in the Lakanto Monkfruit Golden are not included in the nutritional information because most subtract to calculate net carbs.
