My favorite keto salad recipes are any variation of a burger in a bowl!

Keto Salad Recipes

I found myself seriously bored with the usual healthy lunches awhile back.  Salads can become super boring if you are eating the same thing over and over again!

I had some turkey burgers in my freezer and the remainder of what constitutes a darn good burger, so I threw it all in a bowl for one tasty low carb salad.

I completely forgot about the burger in a bowl until a few weeks ago when I was scrolling through Pinterest and saw a cheeseburger salad!

Remembering my former creation and this new recipe I saw, I made the super yummy Bacon Cheeseburger Salad.

What is the Keto Diet

Before I tell you about what the Keto diet is, I disclaim that any and all “diet” that you choose to follow should be discussed with your doctor.

In a quick and dirty Keto tutorial, the Keto diet is basically where you eat higher amounts of fats and lower amounts of carbs.  Once done properly, following a Keto diet will send your body into a state of ketosis, during which your stored fat is used as energy.  So, your calories are coming from fat, not carbs.  Thus, your body burns your stored fat!  If the Keto diet is something you’re looking to follow, it can become quite pricey to purchase fresh, organic foods, right?!  In an effort to help you stay on budget, this post is going to help you navigate the Keto diet at my favorite budget friendly keto store, Aldi!

What not to eat on the Keto Diet

I am not lying when I say that once you start to ditch the carbs, you really don’t miss them!  Every once in awhile I will get a craving for bread, but it’s few and far between.

This keto burger salad is designed to give you all of the flavor of a yummy burger but a low carb burger!

The keto diet is defined as low-carb.  That means you will be limiting certain foods.

Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Salad Recipe

This keto bacon burger salad is super easy.  I’m all about meals that can be used for dinner and lunch leftovers!

The prep was incredibly easy.  Aside from pan frying the hamburger meat and washing and chopping up the vegetables, this is one of the most simple keto recipes.  Don’t you love it when meal prep takes next to no time at all??

This recipe makes about four servings.  My husband loved it and who doesn’t love a healthy recipe that is husband-approved!?
