Delicious Diabetic Salad Recipes
Not being allowed to have sugar does not mean you cannot eat delicious salads, since not every salad recipe features sugar. Even if you do want to sweeten your salad dressing, you can add some artificial sweetener in place of the sugar. Some ingredients are high in natural sugar, including fruits, but it is possible to make mouthwatering diabetic salad recipes which you should enjoy.
The following recipe combines veggies like cucumber, red cabbage, and corn, with a tangy lemon and basil dressing. This salad makes a nice lunch for two people, or you can serve it as a side dish and stretch it to four. As an appetizer it would serve four too. Although the salad itself is very basic, the flavors work together beautifully and you also get some contrasting textures.
Feel free to swap the minced basil for parsley, dill, cilantro, or another kind of fresh herb, or use a combination of them. You could use dried herbs in this diabetic salad, but dried ones do not offer such a fresh, bright flavor, so flavor wise you would lose out a little. Diabetic salad recipes are perfect for anyone looking for a healthy meal or snack, and the following recipe is super-easy to put together.
- ¼ sliced cucumber
- 2 sliced hard-boiled eggs
- 1 cup cubed feta cheese
- ¼ cup chopped red cabbage
- ½ grated carrot
- ½ cup corn kernels
- 3 sliced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh basil
- Divide the cucumber, eggs, cheese, red cabbage, carrot, corn, and tomatoes between 2 plates.
- Stir the dressing ingredients together, then drizzle this over the salad and serve.
You can either toss all the ingredients together to make this salad or, as you see in the picture, arrange the ingredients on the plate for a more careful presentation. Using brightly colored ingredients like corn and tomato always gives a vibrant-looking result and this plateful of delicious ingredients is perfect for anyone who is diabetic, or even anyone who is not. Diabetic salad recipes can be just as tasty as regular ones, and if you are using fresh ingredients as well as fruit juice, herbs and other tasty things, you will not miss the sugar anyway.
