I love a tasty and fast salad for lunch most days. My problem is that I get caught up in what I’m doing and don’t want to stop. And if lunch is at all complicated, I’ll skip it.

Then I get hangry.

That’s where a keto-friendly salad made with keto superfoods like this is brilliant. Avocados will provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and both salmon and avocados are high in potassium that will help you avoid keto-flu.

If you have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge it takes less than five minutes and almost zero effort to throw together. I used hot smoked salmon, because I adore it and always have some on hand, but you can use cold smoked or even fresh if you prefer. Enjoy!
