Parmesan & Tomato Iceberg Salad

This is one of my favourite salads to throw together because I always have these elements in the fridge. In summertime, while Funnyman takes care of the meat on the braai (BBQ), I nip into the kitchen to whip this quick side salad up – and it takes me less than 15 minutes!

Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 cloves garlic, crushed with a garlic press
  • pinch sea salt flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1.5 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 120 g (4.2 oz) iceberg lettuce, shredded

  • Use a small, sharp paring knife to finely chop the tomatoes. Place inside a bowl.
  • Peel the garlic clove and use a garlic press to finely crush the garlic into the bowl of tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and add the olive oil and lemon juice. Mix to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the thinly sliced lettuce and grated Parmesan.
  • You can make both these elements a few hours ahead of time. Cover with clingfilm and leave the tomato mixture at room temperature and the lettuce mixture in the fridge.
