Keto Caesar Salad Dressing
Love creamy dressings?
Low Carb Keto salad dressings are not always easy to find in the store. When you do, they are often full of food additives and preservatives that most of us don't want anything to do with.
This is a Keto Recipe which means it is high fat and low in carbs. You could easily adapt this to a lower fat option by swapping out the ingredients.
Milk Kefir is a tangy fermented beverage that is loaded with good for you gut bugs (priobiotics). We love kefir in salad dressing is a great way to enjoy it's tangy flavor. It also has great shelf life in the refrigerator. We go through a full batch of this in 3-4 days.
What if I don't have Kefir?
No problem! Instead of using milk kefir, just use heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is a great ingredient for a keto recipe because it's very low in carbs.
How many carbohydrates are in Kefir?
If you head to the store and look at a kefir label, you'll notice the kefir has quite a few carbs. Commercially made kefir uses a different process than a homemade milk kefir recipe. I recommend that you make your own kefir at home to truly enjoy a low carb kefir. During the fermentation process, the kefir grains digest the lactose in milk. (Lactose is sugar found in milk) Therefore, the result is a delicious low-carb kefir. We ferment ours for about 3 days which yields in a tangy and low-carb kefir beverage!

*Warning- NEVER ingest any oil other than Young Living Vitality oils. The majority of Essential Oils on the market are adulterated with synthetic chemicals/ingredients that may be harmful for your health. When my recipes mention “Essential Oil”–I am always referring to Young Living Vitality Essential Oils. They are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) according to the FDA. We trust Young Living exclusively because we’ve been to their farms, asked questions of their technicians and scientists and even called and ask questions of customer service. Young Living knows exactly where every single sourced oil comes from, has incredibly stringent (to the point of ridiculous according to their competitors) quality control, and absolutely won’t blink an eye at rejecting large batch’s of ingredients if something tests suspiciously. They do it all the time. Want to learn more about this amazing company? Send me an email at email@example.com and let’s chat 🙂
