Keto Garlic Shrimp Caesar Salad


This char grilled lemon Keto Garlic Shrimp Caesar salad with creamy Caesar dressing is so good you will feel as if you’re in a fancy restaurant, it’s THAT good!

So, easy to make with creamy avocado slices, crunchy parmesan crisps, savory bacon pieces, and a soft boiled eggs! This recipe serves 4, and can be easily doubled for entertaining to 8! And it’s an entertaining favorite, trust me!
I absolutely love a good caesar salad, and this keto version will not disappoint. I promise you won’t even miss the croutons! You’ll still get all the salty crunchy goodness with the easy to bake parmesan crisps. And mixed with the creaminess of the avocado? It’s soooo good. 
In efforts to keep this recipe simple and quick, I just use my favorite store bought dressing. Plus who wants to mess with anchovies…yuck!  My two favorites are Lite House and Kens Steak House (for a creamier option).

Make this Keto Garlic Shrimp Caesar Salad any night of the week or when entertaining. It’s hearty as a full meal too or bring along to a party as a side! I would suggest assembling right before serving. 

I promise your friends will think you’re a wizard in the kitchen. Serve it in a bowl or on a giant breadboard (my favorite spread personally)! That allows everyone to see what they’re serving and grab a little bit of everything for the perfectly balanced caesar salad.
