Keto Lemon Dill Cucumber Salad

I love this salad! It’s 100% keto friendly and so light and delicious. Fish is my favorite main course to serve with this side. That is when I’m not eating it as a light, filling snack. You can also make it vegan! Just replace the mayonnaise with vegannaise. Keto Lemon Dill Cucumber Salad Servings: 5Continue reading “Keto Lemon Dill Cucumber Salad”

Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. 🤣 It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile ChickenContinue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”
