No-tato salad

No-tato salad

Find out why everyone is raving about this easy yet oh-so-good side-dish. Instead of potatoes, we use raw zucchini, which gives it the right consistency minus all the carbs. It pairs beautifully with any protein of choice—everything from good quality chorizo or roast beef to grilled chicken or fish.

    Absolutely loved this recipe. Potato salad used to be my favourite salad before we started our low carb journey. Only thing I would add is a chopped up boiled egg.
    Yet another great Diet Doctor recipe.

    Could you eat this salad on Keto?

    Yes, this is only 5g net carbs. With keto, you want to be under 20g a day.

    Shop is totally out of courgette, I'm going to try this with cucumber, as far as I can see the nutrition isn't far off, though it says cucumber is higher carb am seeing it listed as 3.6 carbs per 100g but where am buying it from all the cucumber is listed as only 1g carbs and 0.7g fibre per 100g
    I am slightly confused how to compare the nutrition you list with the frequent adaptions I need to make and also what seems very variable nutrition values for many ingredients
    do you have a list of the nutrition per ingredient that your recipes are calculated using? So I can compare and adapt more easily and so what I'm using is similar before relying on the overall nutrition guide. I do realise it will never be a complete match but would help to ensure we are getting a similar item or substitute if needs be.

    Cucumber will make a different dish because it's a bit crunchier than raw courgette, but I bet it will still be fantastic!

    For general guides, we have our visual guides which compare the amount of carbs for different ingredients per 100g which can be helpful!
