Strawberry Spinach and Basil Salad

We couldn’t think of a better salad to close out the summer season with than this.

Simple, fresh, and sweet, it’s a perfect accompaniment to an omelet breakfast or a grilled chicken dinner, but it’s also a satisfying light meal in its own right. With just 6 ingredients (including the dressing) and 10 minutes of prep time, you have a delicious salad (and nutrient powerhouse) on the table.

Keto Cole Slaw

Whether you’re planning a summer barbecue or an informal dinner, you can never go wrong with cole slaw. Creamy, tangy and crunchy, it’s always a crowd pleaser. But most cole slaw recipes use ingredients that contain sugar or other added sweeteners as well as mayo made with industrial seed oils. Not this recipe. Here you’ll find a healthier version all around and one that even fits the needs of a keto dieter—with all the fresh taste you’ve come to expect.

The goodness of Primal Kitchen® Mayo (made from healthy avocado oil) and Primal Kitchen Organic Spicy Brown Mustard mix with the bright colors and nutrients of cabbage, carrots and green onion—with a few extras to create a zesty and creamy side you’ll want to serve every week. (Personally, we think they go exceptionally well with these tempting Low-Carb Ribs….)

Spicy Chicken Wing Cobb Salad

Why serve bland chicken breast in Cobb salad, when spicy chicken wings taste so much better? This salad is especially great for parties and potlucks. A big, colorful Cobb salad is always a hit. Plus, it’s easy (and affordable) to grill up a bunch of chicken wings for a crowd.

These chicken wings are delicious hot off the grill (or out from under the broiler), but if you want to make this salad ahead of time, go for it. The wings are just as good chilled from the refrigerator.
