Strawberry Feta Spinach Salad (Keto, Low Carb)
I personally enjoy eating salads a lot, so I decided to mix things up a bit with this strawberry feta spinach salad. If you are taking the low carb diet challenge or starting the low carb diet for diabetics, this salad can help you right along the journey. This salad is simple to make, yet filled with so many unique tastes and textures for your palate. In short, this keto, low carb strawberry feta spinach salad is surprisingly delicious and filling! However, it may have you looking forward to the next one.
This strawberry feta spinach salad is made with cooked chicken, pecan halves, strawberries, fresh spinach leaves and feta cheese crumbles. All things you can likely find at the grocery store. You can use any cooked chicken that you like. I used cooked chicken thighs that I had seasoned to use with some of my other salads like the Low Carb Asian Chicken Salad.
I enjoy eating pecans, not only because of the health benefits of pecans, but because they make a very satisfying low carb snack. However, if you do not feel the same way, you can just get a small bag of pecan halves just for this strawberry feta spinach salad.
Strawberries are one of the keto approved low carb fruits. Therefore, if you are a diabetic, you can eat them in moderation. This particular salad includes only two strawberries that are sliced into multiple pieces.
Spinach is one of my favorite low carb vegetables. You can get whichever kind you prefer or is available at the store. When possible, I prefer the organic baby spinach leaves. Although, most of them all seem to taste the same.
The feta cheese crumbles are kind of like the “icing” on top. If you have never had feta cheese, it is hard to explain, but you will see how this semi-creamy cheese really brings the strawberry feta spinach salad flavors together. And finally, top it with either a low carb sugar-free strawberry vinaigrette dressing or italian dressing.
