Here’s an easy dinner that is entirely satisfying and tastes just like a higher carb version. The secret is to use Quest Protein Tortilla-Style Chips in place of corn tortilla chips (I chose Nacho Cheese flavor, but you can substitute your favorite). This delicious salad has become a hands-down favorite on my keto diet, especially when I don’t feel like cooking!
