Sara Louise’s Keto Salad Nicoise

This alternative take on the popular and lightweight Keto Salad Nicoise will have you swooning come lunch time

Who doesn’t love a low carb keto Nicoise salad, a beautiful, lightweight lunchtime salad of tuna, roasted potatoes, green beans, eggs, and vinaigrette dressing. This classic french dish makes a lovely lunch any day of the week, but it needs some work to make it low carb and truly keto or a bit more modern depending on your point of view. To that end here is my Keto Salad Nicoise recipe.

I fact my Keto Salad Nicoise recipe gets rid of all the starchy potatoes, yet adds some extra good fat in the form of tasty goats cheese, and generally brightens up the Keto Salad Nicoise using a lightly seared ahi tuna steak served up rare. If you prefer you can use canned tuna also, the choice is yours!
