When I make salads, I tend to add a large variety of ingredients to them because plain green salads are a little boring to me. Also, if you’re making a salad as a meal – you need to bulk it up with things that are healthy but will still keep you full! This keto greek salad with feta is one of my typical lunches or light dinners. It also works really well as a side in a bigger spread, but is hearty enough to keep you full for a long time!

I absolutely love the different textures and flavors in this salad. Every bite has a little something different, which keeps it interesting!

For a dressing, I just make a super simple vinaigrette with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. The salad itself is so flavorful and fresh that you don’t need much in terms of a dressing. 

This is a great dish to bring to a potluck or picnic – I used it during the holidays and it was a hit!

How to Make Keto Greek Salad – Step by Step

Step 1: Make your dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic, garlic, salt & pepper. Set aside.

Step 2: In a large salad bowl, add the greens first, and then top with the rest of the veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers, red pepper, onion). Then add the cheese, cranberries and almonds. 

Step 3: Toss with the dressing. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper as needed. 

What makes this Keto Greek Salad healthy?

  • Low Carb: This salad is low carb with 11 grams of net carbs. To further reduce the carb count you can take out the dried cranberries.
  • Low Calorie: One serving of this salad has only 171 calories with the dressing included. That’s a hearty and filling salad for under 200 calories!
  • Dark Leafy Greens: It is recommended that you consume dark leafy greens everyday due to their nutrient dense profile. Leafy greens provide fiber, folate, carotenoids, vitamins C and K, as well as iron calcium and antioxidants. 
  • High in Fiber: Veggies are naturally high in fiber which aids in digestion and helps you feel full while consuming less.

Will kids enjoy this Keto Greek Salad?

This salad is pretty kid friendly. You may just have to cut up the veggies and greens into smaller bites – similar to a chopped salad.

What makes this Greek Salad Keto-friendly?

This salad is low in carbs, and all of the carbs from this salad come directly from the vegetables and greens. There are no grains, or starchy carbs in this salad. 

What do you serve with Keto Greek Salad?

This is also a great dish to bring to a potluck or picnic – I used it during the holidays and it was a hit!

How long does this salad last?

This salad will keep for 3 days in the fridge when dressed, about 5 days if you keep the dressing on the side.

Top Tips for Making Keto Greek Salad

  • Thoroughly wash and dry the greens.
  • Use a blend of leafy greens. I like a mix of spinach, baby kale, arugula, and baby lettuce. If you don’t have a blend of greens you can use any salad greens you like or have on hand!
  • Peel cucumbers prior to adding them to the salad. If you are using English cucumbers you won’t have to peel them.
  • Use red onion for added color.
  • Seed the tomatoes before adding them to the salad (otherwise your salad will get watery)
  • Slice the red peppers into thin slices.
  • If you don’t have feta, you can use goat cheese or any other cheese you like.
