This crab asparagus and avocado salad came out of my creation of the delicious Keto Green Goddess Dressing. The two pair so well together.

This crab salad is such a tasty Keto dinner recipe that can be whipped up in minutes and is perfect for summer when you want something fresh and light.

High in healthy fats and just 4 g net carbs per serving it’s perfect for those of you who prefer really low carb meals.

Shellfish like crab is one of the most nutritionally dense ketogenic foods you can eat. Feel free to use a mixture of brown and white crab meat or all white. The brown is super tasty though in my opinion. I hope you enjoy it.
