Ingredients: For the Salad:

  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  4. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss gently to coat everything evenly.
  5. Refrigerate the Keto Broccoli Salad for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld and the salad to chill.
  6. Before serving, give the salad a final toss to ensure all the ingredients are coated with the dressing.
  7. Divide the salad into individual serving bowls or plates.
  8. Serve the Keto Broccoli Salad as a side dish or a light lunch option.

Note: Feel free to customize your salad by adding additional ingredients such as cherry tomatoes, sliced bell peppers, or diced avocado. Adjust the dressing ingredients according to your taste preferences by adding more vinegar for tanginess or more mayonnaise for creaminess.
