Keto High-Fiber Roasted Eggplant Side Salad
This beautiful salad is packed with healthy high-fiber Keto ingredients that will keep you full for hours. This amazing salad pairs perfectly with various meat and fish dishes but can also serve as a light dinner or an afternoon snack. Roasted eggplant and Brussels sprouts give this salad its unique touch while perfectly complementing the fresh vegetables. You can also add some of your favorite leafy greens or other low-carb veggies and create a unique salad every time. We added a small amount of garlic to the salad, but that's completely optional. Enjoy!
How to serve this salad?
This salad is best when served immediately while eggplant and sprouts are still fresh and crispy, but it will also work perfectly cold, so you can prepare it in advance. Optionally, serve with your favorite Keto-friendly salad dressing.
