This low carb cabbage, avocado and toasted almond dish is such an easy side for a speedy weeknight dinner. It's a healthy low-carb side for those who just started following a keto diet.
Just one serving will provide an extra boost of electrolytes that will help keep keto flu away, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats from avocado and olive oil to help reduce inflammation.
Feel free to pair with your favourite side of protein, like Martina’s Crispy Chicken Thighs or Salmon Patties.
Blanching and then immediately dropping the cabbage into a bowl of iced water keeps it crisp and fresh. No one likes soggy, over boiled cabbage right?
The dressing is packed full of flavour, zesty and the perfect accompaniment to buttery toasted almonds. I hope you enjoy.
