Keto herring vegetable salad|for holidays and parties

Hello! Today I will share with you another delicious recipe : Keto herring salad, which is something for lovers of vegetable salads and traditional cuisine – but in a fatty and keto version! Perfect for the festive table, not only for Christmas Eve and Christmas, Easter, a regular dinner, as well as any home party. It is delicious, and very healthy and filling.

It can also be made in a vegetarian version, e.g. cauliflower as potatoes or a vegetable substitute for fish. It’s quick and easy to make, and despite the fact that it’s not very revealing (the recipe is inspired by a traditional one), it may inspire someone to prepare a healthy meal. So if you like this idea for a keto dish, I invite you to my recipe.

Salad preparation

Time needed: 3 hours and 20 minutes.

Keto herring vegetable salad

  1. Filets first.

    Rinse the herring fillets taken out of the salty brine well under running water. Put it in a bowl with water (possibly spices) and leave it for a few hours / overnight in the fridge.

  2. Eggs.

    Hard boil medium-sized eggs, cool and peel. Then, dry the fillets with a paper towel and cut into small strips.

  3. Mixing.

    We prepare a fairly tall bowl. Throw in the chopped herring and eggs cut into large pieces. Add the diced, peeled apple and the same fine cucumbers and chopped onion (and possibly cheese)

  4. Time for the sauce.

    Mix the given ingredients in a separate bowl, season to taste and pour over the salad. It must be chewed at least 10 minutes before serving. Ready!

Keto herring salad, notes:

Store-bought mayonnaise contains refined vegetable oil, which is very unhealthy, especially for people on a keto diet. It’s your choice whether you choose to eat it from time to time for flavor or make this homemade and healthier one.

I recommend the recipe for my homemade olive oil mayonnaise: Homemade mayonnaise, full of healthy fats (fit, keto, lchf)

I also recommend adding peppers, cauliflower, cheeses and other ingredients that pretend to be traditional additions to the salad. If you use cauliflower, it must be cooked before slicing.
