Frequently Asked Questions

Is Greek Salad Keto-Friendly?

This recipe for greek salad is keto-friendly since it is made from naturally low-carb ingredients and has only 5g net carbs per serving. However, if you are talking about those greek salads from restaurants, the answer depends on what dressing was used.

Should I Pell Cucumbers?

If you want, I choose not to do it because the skin of cucumbers contains dietary fiber, which is good for your health. 

What Is The Best Salad Greek Salad Dressing?

I like to use a classic dressing made from olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but you can also use your favorite dressing as well – as I said above, it is an extremely versatile recipe.

Sure, if you want, you can prepare the vegetables ahead of time and store them in the fridge. Then when you are ready to eat, drizzle the vegetable mixture with dressing, mix and enjoy.
