35 Low-Carb Healthy Summer Salads

Sharing with you 35 low carb and healthy salads, with salad option for everyone! With access to these salad recipes, you can plan whole week lunch/dinner salads ahead and then never miss a day in your healthy regime!

Even though, I always share diet information with salad recipes, I felt... posting a low-carb salad recipe round up will give you lot of get-fit-faster salads to choose from.

Please note: I have also included some chickpea salad recipes in this collection. Chickpeas are not carb free but are certainly less in carb than wheat or pasta. Chickpeas or legumes are also source of protein. I would categories chickpea, or lentils salads as slow-carbs. Always eat a controlled portion of these salads if you are strictly on Low-Carb diet.

Bonus! A lot, I mean.... A LOT of salad in this round-up are gluten free too! Sounds good? So, let's eat a lot of salads this season! Bookmark this page and start getting healthy one day at time!
