This salad is based on a traditional Czech recipe called “Hanacky Salat”. In some ways it’s similar to coleslaw but instead of freshly grated cabbage you will need fermented cabbage, aka sauerkraut.

This keto friendly salad is easy to prepare and because it’s so pretty pink, it even makes a delicious side for your Valentine’s Day menu. I like to serve mine with pan-roasted pork chops, lamb chops, sausages, steak, or just on its own.

Czechs eat this gut-healthy salad just with bread — although that’s a no-no for a healthy low-carb diet, you can always make a batch of these keto bread buns. They are delicious and taste just like real bread!

I didn’t have enough pink sauerkraut and used a combination of both pink and white sauerkraut. If all you have is white sauerkraut, just add one small grated beetroot. Don’t worry, adding one 3-oz (85 grams) beetroot will only increase the net carb count by one gram per serving.

You can optionally add some powdered low-carb sweetener or a few drops of liquid stevia — it will make the salad more authentic. I like mine spicy so I added an extra tablespoon of horseradish and more black pepper.

You can even make this salad with other fermented foods like these Gut-Healing Carrots, although I’d use grated rather than sliced. Fermented foods are some of the best keto-friendly ingredients and should be included in your diet.
