A simple homemade version of the ever-so-popular Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Chopped Salad kit sold at Costco. The creamy dill pickle ranch dressing is sugar-free and low-carb. This crunchy, flavorful salad is a dill pickle lover’s dream!
This Keto Creamy Dill Pickled Chopped Salad is featured in my new book, Let’s Celebrate. My love for dill pickles inspired this recipe and the dill pickle chopped salad kits found at Costco and grocery stores. It’s made with green leaf lettuce, shredded cauliflower, kale, cabbage, and radishes.
Why You Will Love This Salad
If you’re a dill pickle lover, this salad is for you! It’s so simple to make, and it’s customizable. I made a few substitutions from the store-bought kit. I’m a huge fan of chopped salads because you get a little bit of everything in each bite. Unfortunately, some store-bought salad dressings have unnecessary ingredients such as soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, and sugar. This recipe is made with a homemade creamy, tangy dill pickle ranch dressing with chopped pickles. Plus, it’s sugar-free and will fit your keto lifestyle.
Romaine Lettuce, red cabbage, cauliflower, white cheddar cheese, bacon, and pecans.
Salad Dressing Ingredients
Sour Cream, mayonnaise, dill pickles, fresh dill, fresh parsley, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
How To Make Dill Pickle Chopped Salad
Prep the ingredients. Make sure to chop the veggies into bite-sized pieces. Place the romaine lettuce in a large salad bowl. Arrange the rest of the salad ingredients on top of the lettuce.
Place all of the dressing ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk the dressing until it is well combined.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat the pieces. Add extra dill to taste.
Add chicken, turkey, or tuna to make this salad a meal. Any protein would be great!
It’s so easy to customize this salad using your favorite veggies. I chose to leave out the kale and radishes like in the store-bought salad. For example, you could use different types of lettuce, green cabbage, broccoli and cucumbers. I added cheddar cheese and pecans for extra crunch. You can use a variety of cheeses and nuts to change the flavor profile.
Dill Pickle Chopped Salad can be made dairy free by omitting the cheese and using dairy-free sour cream instead of regular sour cream.
The dressing can be made up to 3 days ahead. The salad ingredients can be prepped the day before serving. Then, the salad can be assembled a few hours before serving.
Some prefer the taste of this salad served right away. However, it does stay crunchy after it’s refrigerated. It can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
