In warm weather, a fresh chilled salad is so refreshing. This keto version of a classic cucumber salad is great for low-carb diets. This recipe is also gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and grain-free.

My family also loves my Instant Pot Potato Salad, my Deviled Egg Salad, and my Romaine Salad with Simple Vinaigrette.

Ingredients

The only special ingredients you need to make this salad keto versus non-keto is a sweetener like Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener. Or, you can use any form of granulated sweetener you like. This will replace the sugar that is in most cucumber salad dressings.

I also recommend looking for a rice wine vinegar that has no added sugars. Marukan makes a version with no sugar.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Making this keto cucumber salad recipe is as easy as chopped the cucumbers, making the dressing, and then combining the two.

You can serve the salad right after you make it, or chill it in the refrigerator to help marinate the flavors. Either way, I know you are going to love this one!

Tips & Tricks

  • Sometimes people complain that cucumbers make them burp or give them a stomachache. If that is the case, look for Persian cucumbers which are known to be “burpless” and easier to digest. You can also try removing the skin from the cucumbers to help with digestion.
  • Feel free to get creative with this cucumber salad recipe. You can add other vegetables like red bell pepper for more color, or add some red pepper flakes for some spiciness.
  • This Keto Cucumber Salad has even more flavor after it marinates for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. You can also easily double or triple this recipe, as needed.
