A quick recipe for one of the simplest and tastiest fully keto-compliant salads with different types of cucumber and a lot of healthy fat. Ideal to start your day the keto way and to burn fat more effectively.
You will be missing a lot on a keto diet if you don’t eat at least some green vegetables in the forms of salads on a daily basis. Of course, some people prefer eating more veggies while others are more interested in meat. It doesn’t matter what camp you are in because you are simply going to love the keto cucumber salad I’m about to share.
This salad has one main ingredient. You guessed it! It’s cucumbers (click to learn more about cucumbers and their nutritional facts) in five different varieties plus some other extra ingredients to make the salad taste and look even better.
My cucumber salad is very simple and you will only need only a couple of minutes to prepare it. The effect, however, is going to be spectacular.
Whether you have some experience with a keto diet (click to learn more about the program) or you are just starting out, you’re going to love the keto cucumber salad. It has ideal macros for a ketogenic diet and provides you with a lot of nutrition. Good fats will let you stay in ketosis and keep burning fat.
If you don’t want this keto cucumber salad to be more than a side dish or you want to make it the main dish, feel free to add protein-rich foods to it like eggs, cheese, meat or fish. Any of these proteins will go ideally with cucumbers and make a complete keto salad dish.
Below are the macros for the whole keto cucumber salad. If you do intermittent fasting (click to learn about it) and eat 2-3 meals a day, this is an ideal serving for one person. If you have 4-5 smaller meals, you can share it with your spouse or friend. It’s low in calories and big in size.

Start from chopping all the different types of cucumbers into small pieces. Place them into a larger bowl.
Chop the onion and olives as well. Add them to the bowl and watch your salad gain new beautiful colors.
Add MCT oil or olive oil and mix all the ingredients together.
Add salt and taste your salad.
You can serve your salad right away or let it cool down in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes.
Feel free to change the ingredients, add more (or less) types of cucumber or add other veggies too. The more variety, the more interesting your keto cucumber salad will turn out.
