Ingredients

For the keto Greek salad dressing:

  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

  • Chop the cooked turkey or chicken into ½-inch cubes (1.27 cm). Cut the Persian cucumbers in half lengthwise and then into ½-inch thick half-moons. 
  • The cherry tomatoes should be halved (or quartered if they are large). Slice the roasted red peppers into slices about ⅓-inch thick (0.8 cm) and drain and quarter the canned artichokes. Cut the red onion into ¼-½ inch dice (0.64-1.27 cm). 
  • Evenly distribute the mixed salad greens between four salad containers or bowls.
  • Top each container with ¼ of the turkey, feta, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red peppers, artichokes, and red onion.

To make keto Greek salad dressing:

  • Squeeze the lemon with a manual or electric juicer.
  • Put the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard and oregano in a food-safe jar with a tight lid. (I like to use a 1-cup glass canning jar.) Put the lid on the jar and give it a good shake.
  • Keep the dressing separate from the salad until serving time. These salads will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). Keto Greek salad is under 500 calories with loads of non-starchy veggies to make it a high-volume meal. With the protein from turkey and feta, this satisfying meal should help to support a weight loss goal.
If you are trying to lose weight, creating meals that help you feel full on fewer calories can help. For most of us, the combination of protein, fiber, and high fluid volume can help us to feel full. 
The foods that are the best sources of these elements are lean proteins, non-starchy vegetables, and certain fruits. These foods should be staples in your diet if you’re using keto for weight loss. This keto Greek salad is a great example of a healthy keto meal that may help with weight loss.
Many people trying to lose weight on low carb diets make the mistake of overindulging in fatty foods. Fats such as avocado, nuts, olive oil, other added oils and fats, and cheese are healthy foods. However, the portion size for these foods is rather small.
Salad greens, peppers, cucumbers, and other non-starchy vegetables help to make your low-calorie meals big. These foods can be especially helpful if you’re a volume eater. Salads are just one way to make big low-calorie meals; broth-based soups and stir fries are two other options.
If you need a higher energy recipe, using full fat feta cheese adds about 50 calories per serving. You could also add other fats, such as nuts and seeds, to your Greek keto salad. Another option (if you’re not following the keto diet) is to add a side of whole-grain crackers or bread.
