This low-carb chopped salad recipe is made with sweet apple bits which contrast nicely with the salty bacon and creamy avocado.

Chopped salads are some of my favorites because they are easy to eat (no giant lettuce leaves) and you get lots of taste with every bite, in different flavor combinations.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium plum tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup cored chopped apple, peeled or unpeeled
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 ​avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled or cut up small
  • 2 tablespoons Italian or vinaigrette dressing

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the salad ingredients.
  2. Toss with an Italian or vinaigrette dressing.

Makes 1 large meal-sized serving. If you'd like something less filling, divide it, and/or use less avocado.

Another Great Low-Carb Salad Recipe with Bacon

This recipe for Low-Carb Broccoli Salad with Bacon is another way to incorporate bacon into a healthy salad. 

Most classic broccoli with bacon salad recipes have a fair amount of carbs due to raisins and sugar in the dressing.

I've attempted to reduce the sugar, but keep the same salty-sweet flavor combination of the classic cold broccoli salad.

Yet Another Great Low-Carb Salad Recipe with Bacon

This classic recipe for Low-Carb Warm Spinach Salad with Bacon (also known as Wilted Lettuce) is made low-carb-friendly by using a sugar substitute. By amping up the ingredients—adding cooked chicken, turkey, fish or tofu—it can be made into a satisfying meal.
