Keto Cucumber Walnut Salad Second

In this recipe, we’ve combined nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits like olives, cucumber, and tomato with protein-packed feta cheese and Greek yogurt to ensure you get a good servicing of both. The walnuts also make sure you get a good dose of polyunsaturated fats.

This salad isn’t only packed full of goodness, it’s also extremely easy to make. The only part of this recipe that involves any significant effort is toasting the walnuts. This can be done in a skillet or the oven and only takes a few minutes. All you need to do is whip up the dressing, cut up the vegetables, and then add all of the ingredients into a bowl together. 

As not everyone is a fan of ingredients such as olives and feta, you can always swap these ingredients out for alternatives or leave them out entirely. The choice is yours with this recipe. When dressing the salad, you can either dress the salad by mixing the salad in a bowl before serving or serve the dressing on the side.

Go on and try it—it’s sure to become one of your new favorites!
