I love this salad.

You can eat it warm or cold, or you can toss it through a cream sauce and serve it over zoodles as a hearty main dish. With just 3 grams of net carbs per serving, it’s a great dish for those who keep their carb intake ultra low when following a healthy high-fat diet. It’s a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially potassium - an electrolyte often deficient in modern diets.

Any way you eat it, you’re sure to enjoy this delicious combination. It’s ideal for lunch boxes and it’s fast to throw together too, which gives it an extra tick in my book. Enjoy!
