Fresh Deconstructed Spring Roll Salad
When it comes to scrumptious salads, I love them all! I enjoy salads all year through no matter the weather or season. But let's face it, sometimes salads can get boring and uninteresting and certainly less exciting that a hot meal.
Changing up the ordinary salad to include some fresh vegetables and ingredients that are often found in keto spring rolls, is what I'm bringing you today.
This spring roll recipe makes for a perfect salad to bring to a cook out or a new favorite easy lunch with all your friends who will be asking for this easy recipe.
But it's the creamy sweet, sugar-free homemade peanut sauce that takes this deconstructed spring roll salad to the next level!
Carbs in Fresh Spring Rolls
Whether it's Chinese spring rolls or fresh Vietnamese spring rolls, they both need rice paper wrappers made from rice flour to stuff the ground meat and vegetable filling ingredients.
The fresh spring roll wrappers are not fried, but still contain a high amount of carbs for a keto diet.
According to Cronometer fresh spring rolls with just vegetables and no protein have about 10 g carbs per roll.
Our low-carb spring roll salad has 7 total grams of carbs for a very large serving that includes 15 grams of protein.
Low-Carb Spring Rolls
Since I haven't yet figured out how to make a homemade egg roll wrapper keto friendly, I bring you this deconstructed spring roll salad as my fresh version of a spring roll without the rice paper skins!
Honestly more than anything, a dressing can make or break a great salad.
Today's dressing is anything but ordinary and something to enjoy not only on this salad, but as a dipping sauce with fresh veggies, keto vegetables like sweet bell peppers, cucumbers, celery or even to marinade lean protein like chicken on the grill!
Drizzle over the top or mix it all entirely in the whole thing, almost like you would a coleslaw. You can see how I did that in my video below.

Can I replace the peanut butter?
Can I replace the coconut aminos?
Coconut aminos is a healthy soy free, gluten free alternative to soy sauce. But you could replace it if you need to.
Can I use sesame oil instead?
You can use sesame oil instead of olive oil or avocado oil.
Can I swap the chicken?
The best thing about this salad is that you can add any cooked protein you like. Make it a shrimp spring roll bowl with easy cooked shrimp or another great option is to use up leftover cooked ground pork or ground beef.
Just note that the nutritional information below includes using cooked chicken breast so if you change out the protein just adjust for that.
