Keto Grilled Vegetable Chopped Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Charred vegetables lend smoky, earthy contrast to cool, crunchy lettuce and creamy avocado-mayonnaise dressing in this luscious main course or side dish. 
Serves 2

Ingredients List

  • 1 medium (5 oz) zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick strips
  • 3 radishes, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices (if grilling on a grill, place in a vegetable basket or skewered onto skewers)
  • 4 oz (about 12 medium) asparagus spears, woody ends trimmed
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp (good-quality ) mayonnaise, such as Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayonnaise or Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves or Italian parsley leaves
  • 1 (4 oz) Romaine heart, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan at medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine the zucchini, radishes, and asparagus with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Place the vegetables on the hot grill and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Turn the vegetables and cook for 3 minutes more. Continue cooking, turning every 3 minutes, until the vegetables are tender throughout; if they’re browning too quickly, move them to the edge of the grill or grill pan. Set aside the vegetables on a cutting board.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing: in a food processor or blender, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the avocado, lime juice, mayonnaise, vinegar, and cilantro. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To serve the salad, place the chopped lettuce in a serving bowl, add the remaining olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Chop the grilled vegetables into bite-size pieces (asparagus on the bias, zucchini into chunks, radishes diced) and add them to the bowl. Toss the salad, then divide it between 2 dinner plates. Sprinkle each with the sunflower seeds and serve with the dressing on the side.
