I don’t know about you but I love a good crunch on salads. On keto the typical crouton is usually out and making your own low-carb croutons can take some time but these Keto Salad Toppers are a quick and easy way to get that crunchiness in less time!

You can use any seeds and/or nuts you like but I typically go with sunflower seeds, pecans, sliced almonds, and pepitas. Cooking them in a bit of oil with herbs and spices gives them a great toasty flavor and the flavor combos are practically endless!
