This Everything Bagel Keto Salad is perfect for Breakfast and Brunch and includes all of the classic fixings without the bagels!
When we think of breakfast or brunch, a lot of us don’t immediately think SALAD. Well I’m about to change all that with this Everything Bagel Keto salad with a runny egg and smoked salmon. One of the things I’ve been asked REPEATEDLY by a lot of my followers who are eating more high fat, lower carb or keto style diets, is that they need more awesome salads that don’t suck in their life. I agree, I think one of the biggest potential downfalls of the keto diet is it’s potential to lack fibre, so any recipes I can give you to help boost that up are GOLD in my opinion. I also think that even if you’re not eating keto or low carb, we could ALL stand to get more veggies into our mornings, and a salad that LEGIT tastes like a bagel is the BEST way to do it.
How to Make Breakfast Everything Bagel Keto Salad
This is stupid easy but is awesome for just a single serving breakfast or if you’re brunch entertaining a crowd and need to balance out all the french toast and bennies. It starts with the holy grail of flavour- EVERYTHING BAGEL SPICE. I have a standard blend I use in my everything bagel recipes on my blog that’s super easy to whip up, but you can also easily pick it up on amazon (I like Trader Joe’s).
Then I just get some beautiful greens (you can use spinach, romaine, iceberg or even shredded kale for some extra fibre), cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, dill, avocado, and smoked salmon. Basically, this is everything (except for the bagel) that you’ll typically find on a bagel and lox spread. As a Jewish mother, I know this spread ALL TOO WELL. There isn’t a day that I don’t have all of these things in my house, and there isn’t a weekend breakfast or brunch where these essentials are not expected to be served. I don’t know about your family, but I think mine would welcome a lighter take on the classic.
So here you go, bagel-lovers. I’ve put all of our favourite everything bagel keto friendly ingredients in ONE AMAZING fibre-rich and nutrient-rich salad bowl. You’re welcome, loves.
