This is a collection of the Best Low-Carb and Keto Salad dressings that you can make (and a few salad dressings you can buy). All of these are free of added and refined sugar but bold with flavor. These keto salad dressing recipes are perfect for those who want to eat their daily carbs in veggies. In this post, you’ll find out how easy it is to make salad dressing at home, but also learn about some dairy-free, paleo, and Whole30 options that you can buy if you’re short on time.
Why share a keto salad dressing recipe post?
Whether you like to keep things simple with an iceberg wedge salad or pile your salad high with all the fresh veggies you can fit into your bowl – a good low carb salad dressing ties it all together.
But, buying your dressing is a risky option. If you don’t read your labels, you may end up eating something that’s not the best for ketosis. Thankfully, it is easy to just make your own. Plus, there are some options that aren’t filled with weird stuff available at the store.
I hope that as you look through this list that you’ll see the variety you can enjoy! Some of these are mine – like the Quick Keto Caesar Dressing. I gathered the other links together from some of my favorite sites. If you’ve been craving salads – you’re welcome!
What salad dressings are keto? What makes a salad dressing keto-friendly?
Keto-friendly salad dressings are high in fat and have no added sugar. If you purchase salad dressing in the store, be sure to read labels. Even Ranch or Creamy Caesar can have added sugar, depending on the brand.
Why make keto salad dressing at home?
My first response to this question is always “homemade dressings taste better“! There is nothing like the fresh, vibrant flavor of just-made salad dressing. It’s so fast and easy to make them, and – you control all ingredients. No hidden sugar here!
Tools to Make Keto Salad Dressings at Home
Most of these dressings require just a few ingredients. You can absolutely make these in a blender or blender cup, but my favorite way to make dressings, especially vinaigrettes, is with a salad dressing shaker.
Salad Dressing Shakers allow you to dump & shake. They also work as an easy storage container. My favorite one is below.
Are there low carb salad dressings that you can buy?
When shopping for low carb dressings, always read your labels. Look for healthy fats, no added sugars, and ideally, no ingredients that you are unable to pronounce.
Yes! Two popular ones are:
This Chosen Foods Lemon Garlic Dressing is not only amazing on salads. It makes an awesome marinade for fish and chicken, too.
Yo Mama’s Caesar Dressing is another hit! It’s popular as a dressing and as a dip!
You might also try, Thrive Market.
Assuming that you buy as many all-natural and keto food products online, as I do, another great source for buying low carb salad dressings is Thrive Market.
They have options like Primal Kitchen’s Greek Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil and many more.
