This keto salad is based on an old classic - creamy cucumber salad. What I love about it most is that it takes just a few minutes to prepare and uses a few simple ingredients.

Unlike the traditional recipe which includes sour cream, I made it dairy-free by using paleo mayonnaise and added sliced radishes for an extra crunch. I like to serve mine as a side with steak, barbecued fish, or crispy duck breast.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Great recipe! All of my favourite ingredients! I see mixed reviews that onion is not Keto friendly?

Hi Janet, onion can definitely be part of a keto diet (in moderation): Complete Keto Diet Food List: What to Eat and Avoid on a Low-Carb Diet
