Hi friends, if you haven't seen me posting recently, it's because we've been busy working on new features for the KetoDiet App, including the fully-featured Android App. And it doesn't end there. I've been working on two new cookbooks! My Quick Keto Meals in 30 Minutes or Less cookbook will be out in June 2017 and is available to preorder, and my Keto Slow Cooker and One-Pot Meals cookbook will be out in winter 2017/18.

So we joined forces with two talented food bloggers who will be developing recipes for our site! Today I'd like to introduce Lauren, the mastermind behind Wicked Spatula. Lauren will be helping me create even more low-carb, keto & paleo recipes. Here's her first recipe: Bistro Steak Salad with Horseradish Dressing.

I’m a huge fan of eating at least one large salad each day. Not only are you loading up on veggies that boast a good dose of fiber and vitamins but they’re quick, easy, and perfect for packing for lunches.

This Bistro Steak Salad with Horseradish Dressing packs an extra protein punch from some delicious steak but also a great tang and bite from the horseradish dressing. I find that most salads you order out are loaded with sugar undoing all of the benefits of eating a healthy salad. Gorgeous veggies doused in a dressing that’s full of less than stellar oils and sugar sort of negates the whole eating a salad philosophy you know?

I promise that this will be a salad you come back to over and over again!

I was just wondering what brand of horseradish you use or could recommend? I've not come across one that doesn't have sugar. 😔


I would use freshly grated horseradish. When it's in season, I freeze it in small batches and it lasts for several months!
