Keto Superfood Caesar Salad

6 ratings

This Caesar salad uses toasted walnuts and sunflower seeds in place of croutons and baby spinach and kale in place of romaine lettuce.

This makes for a great side salad or can be served as a main topped with grilled chicken or pork.

    What a great idea to roast the walnuts. They were delicious in the salad.

      Yes. They hold up nicely to the salad dressing. Also, I find pecans, walnuts, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts make great substitutions for "croutons" in different salads and are actually better for their crunch, flavor, and nutritional benefits too!
