This is one of the most leisurely meals to make for lunch or dinner. It’s my go-to meal when I am starving and don’t want to spend much time cooking or thinking about what to eat after a busy day.
Since I have started the Keto diet in Dec, I have lost almost 11 pounds. Much of my success comes from prepping my meals in advance. I usually precook the sausage and prep the lettuce. This way, the dominant ingredients are ready to toss together.
Buy a pack of chicken sausage that has four carbs per link. Cut the sausage and precook them. This way you have it ready for the next time you want something quick to put together. Do the same with the romaine lettuce. Wash and cut two heads of romaine and store them in an airtight bag in the fridge. The cherry tomatoes and avocados you want to add fresh with every meal. Precut tomatoes and avocados don’t look appealing after a few days in the refrigerator. The lettuce and sausage you can prep, using the ingredients within a week from prep day.
I don’t like to use salad dressing all the time. If the vegetables are fresh, your taste buds will delight with the mixed flavors. Adding dressing may override the flavor of the cold crisp lettuce with freshly cut tomatoes and avocado.
I do have two favorite quick and easy dressing that work on most salads. Try these if you can’t eat a salad without dressing.
