Low Carb Salad: 3 Easy Takeaway Recipes

Low Carb Salad: Are you fasting on carbohydrates? Here are three delicious low-carb salad recipes that fill you up and great to take away. “Low-carb salad? Isn’t salad always low-carb?” You will ask yourself now. In principle, yes, because lettuce is one of the vegetables that are particularly low in carbohydrates. That’s why green salad is the perfect companion on a low-carb diet.

Packaged ready-to-eat salads, however, often contain ingredients that do contain carbohydrates. This is especially true for variations with croutons, pasta, legumes or potatoes, which make the salad more filling. There are also plenty of carbohydrates in the form of sugar in the dressing you buy. Not to mention unhealthy additives. Of course, they have no place in a good low-carb salad.

It is therefore much better and healthier to make the low-carb salad yourself. There are only ingredients in it that you really like and that go with your diet – regardless of whether they are vegetarian or not.

Hear tips and easy recipes for the salad without carbohydrates (or with hardly any carbohydrates) that make you feel full and happy. And best of all: As a salad in a glass, all ideas are perfect for taking away for lunch or on the go.

Which Ingredients Are Suitable For The Low Carb Salad?

Because green salad alone would be too boring, we will, of course, spice up the low-carb salad a bit. But which ingredients are also low in carbohydrates? Here is a brief overview.

Popular low-carb salad ingredients:

carbohydrates per 100 g 

  • Cucumber (2 g)
  • Peas (12 g)
  • Carrots (5 g)
  • Paprika (green 3 g / red 6 g)
  • Radishes (2 g)
  • Pumpkin (5 g)
  • Tomatoes (3 g)
  • Egg (1 g)
  • Onion (5 g)
  • Peas (canned 6 g)
  • Corn (from a can 13 g)
  • green beans (canned 2 g)
  • white beans (canned 17 g)
  • Zucchini (2 g)
  • Eggplant (3 g)
  • Artichoke (3 g)
  • Mushrooms (1 g)

Tip: Prepared, i.e. salted and fried in the pan, the number of carbohydrates often doubles. Therefore, if you are on a low-carb diet, adding raw or blanched vegetables (cooked without salt) to the salad is better.

Fruit also makes a flat salad juicier. But the riper the fruit, the more sugar and therefore more carbohydrates it contains. The same is the case with dried fruits.

Fresh herbs in a low-carb salad? Gladly! With just ten carbohydrates per 100 g, oregano is by far the most carbohydrate-rich herb of all.

Nuts, almonds and seeds give the salad more crunch and are also low in carbs. The same goes for cheese. Just like meat, it is completely free of carbohydrates but contains more fat. So also use this sparingly if you are on a diet.

Low Carb Salad: Recipe For Lentil Salad

Lentils contain a little more carbohydrates but are otherwise quite low in calories and therefore a great and filling ingredient in a vegetarian, low-carb salad. With beetroot and spinach, you have a smart alternative to the classic green salad.

You Need These Ingredients:

For 2 servings

  • 80 g beluga lentils (or Le Puy lentils)
  • salt and pepper
  • 80 g pre-cooked beetroot (vacuum-packed)
  • 1 thick carrot
  • 50 g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey (to taste)
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 100 g sheep cheese (feta)

Approx. 390 kcal and 29 g of carbohydrates per serving

How To Prepare It:

  1. Rinse the lentils with cold water and let them drain. Boil 350 ml of water in a saucepan, add the lentils and cook over medium heat for 20-25 minutes until al dente. Salt at the end of the cooking time. Pour into a sieve and allow to drain.
  1. In the meantime, cut the beetroot into small cubes (it is best to use disposable gloves, as the beetroot rubs off heavily). Peel, clean and roughly grate the carrot. Sort the spinach, wash and spin dry. For the dressing, mix mustard with honey and vinegar, season well with salt and pepper. Withhold oil.
  1. Mix the lukewarm lentils with the dressing and divide them between two screw-top jars (approx. 600 ml each)—top with the beetroot, then the carrot and finally the spinach. Roughly crumble the sheep’s cheese and sprinkle it over it.
