Sometimes salads for lunch can get a little boring and when I first started follow the Keto diet, I really wanted to make sure my lunches were varied and helped me get that essential amount of protein and healthy fats.

This salad is a great celebration of good quality ingredients that can be thrown together in no time at all. It would be perfect to have on a summers day and it makes for a great lunch to take to work that can be quickly and easy to put together.

For those of you following a low-carb or keto plan, this portion works out at only 331 calories, 2.2g net carbs, 17.6g protein and 27.7g fat.

Simple, fresh, summer time flavours. This salad is great for those following a keto diet.

Creamy stilton cheese pairs perfectly with salty prosciutto and crunchy pecans.

The perfect low carb lunch that is packed with protein and healthy fats.
