This Creamy Low-Carb Lemon Vinaigrette recipe is so delicious and full of flavor and fits into your keto or low carb lifestyle perfectly!
I have been living the low carb life for a little over a year now.
To be honest, I started out planning to go strictly keto but, due to breaking my ankle and the Mr. having to prepare meals for several months, I decided to just focus on eating low carb.
If you are confused about the difference between keto and low carb, I will be doing a post on that next week. I know it was rough for me to navigate the road between the two. So hopefully I can share a bit of what I have learned to help you on your journey.
SO that is why you will see keto AND low carb recipes here on the blog.

Don’t get me wrong, I love them both, but a girl needs some variety, right?
I knew I needed to put my thinking cap on to come up with some new tasty ideas that would please the carb lovers as well as myself and came up with recipes like these;
They are all low carb, easy to make, and super yummy!
I now have at least 2 or 3 different low carb salad dressings in my fridge at all time for easy meals on the fly.
Toss some greens with a couple low carb veggies, a protein (some of my faves are leftover steak, pan seared chicken, and even canned salmon), and a delicious homemade low carb salad dressing like this Creamy Low-Carb Lemon Vinaigrette.
