Ingredients for the Fiesta Keto Salad Dressing
You probably already have the ingredients for this easy keto salad dressing recipe in your fridge! Sour cream, a little mayo, a squirt of lime, a few simple spices and some crumbled queso fresco or cotija cheese! Its like the Mexican version of Blue Cheese dressing!
We used Queso Fresco in this version which is a fresh, crumbly cheese with a slightly salty kick. I’m also a fan of Cotija cheese which is more of a Mexican feta…both are great in this dressing and can be found in the specialty cheese section or in my case, in the cheese section of the grocery!
The key to this keto salad dressing recipe is the seasoning! Yes…that Taco Seasoning in your spice cabinet is super versatile and can be used for so much more than taco night! We use is to season veggies, chicken and it’s the star ingredient in this homemade keto dressing! As you know, my spice cabinet is packed with Fiesta Brand Seasonings! Their taco seasoning, like their other spice blends, is amazing and have so many uses around the kitchen! Plus, their Taco Seasoning has no MSG or sugar and make this dressing come together in a snap!
I recommend making this kicked up homemade keto dressing a few hours in advance to let the flavors come together! You can also adjust the consistency by adding a little cream if needed to make it more pourable or keep it on the thicker side for a dipping sauce!
Perfect for topping a taco salad, fajitas, or even dipping, this Fiesta Keto Salad Dressing recipe is easy to prepare and simply delish! Give it a try and tell me what you think!
