I love a veggie-packed salad to use as a base for a keto meal or to enjoy on its own for a lighter meal. This low-carb salad is packed full of fresh and roasted veggies, with pockets of crunch from the raw veggies and walnuts, and creaminess from the avocado.

You can eat a big serve (2 servings at once) of this as a light meal, or use one serving as a side to top with some grilled meat or fish.

We're using a simple sugar-free mustard vinaigrette made with heart-healthy olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Apart from adding a delicious zing and flavour to your meals, apple cider vinegar good for digestion, might help lower blood glucose and insulin after meals, and can even slightly decrease an elevated fasting glucose in people with dawn phenomenon (elevated fasting blood glucose first thing in the morning).

  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional), or 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted). To prepare the vegetables to roast, cut the ends off the asparagus, de-seed the capsicum and slice into 1.5 cm/ 0.6" strips. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, and then diagonally slice into 1 cm/ 0.4" slices.
  2. Add the vegetables to a baking tray and drizzle with the olive oil and salt. Stir to combine until the vegetables are coated. Bake 15-18 minutes until the vegetables are cooked through and starting to brown on the edges. Set aside to cool slightly.
