Delicious Vegan Salad Made With Roasted Cauliflower (Low-Carb)

 
 

Transitioning from eating everything and anything to eating low-carb was surprisingly easy. I tried multiple diets in the past including eating clean, and neither helped with my digestive issues. Then came Keto, which is a super low-carb, no sugar way of eating. Eating low-carb requires extensive research, dedication, and patience. I realized how much carbs/sugar I was consuming in a day, whether hidden or not. Before I dig a little bit more on keto, I'd like to say one thing

"Bacon"

When eating low-carb, your keto food list not only becomes more expensive, but fatty as well. This diet is all about eating more fats than both protein and carbs which keeps you satiated throughout the day. Meat, dairy, low-carb vegetables, healthy oils, low-carb nuts are all permitted on keto. The hardest thing I encountered was finding easy keto recipes that would not only satisfy me but also high in fat.

I think anyone who enjoys a low-carb diet can attest to cauliflower being a staple in their diet. The versatility of this vegetable is out of this world. Whether its cauliflower crust pizza, cauliflower mash, rice, soup or just as a side, you can't go wrong. This time around, I decided to make this easy cauliflower salad using what I had in the fridge. 

this cauliflower salad recipe is super yummy

This recipe is great for a vegan side salad, otherwise, go ahead and have it for lunch as well.  The addition of avocado is the icing on the cake, do not make this without it, TRUST ME.

Most of the ingredients used for this recipe might already be present in your kitchen, making it easier to prepare. Bonus, if you have extra roasted cauliflower (right out the oven), you can save it for later and have it with a protein of choice or alone. ( Yes, it's that GOOD!) This salad is high in healthy fats (avocado, olive oil and nuts) which is perfect for those low on their fat intake for the day.
