Welcome. T1D here of nearly 26 years. I eat a lot of salads, and the good news for you is that most popular salad vegetable ingredients actually have very few carbs!

In salads, it’s seldom the veg you have to worry about; but if you add dressing or croutons/tortilla chips, those will have the most carbs due to sugar and starch content. Typically, though, you can prepare salads full of leafy greens that have few to no carbs. Here is an example of broccoli; a full cup has just 6 carbs, nearly 3 of which are fiber, so only about 3.5 “net carbs”: Broccoli, raw Nutrition Facts & Calories I can microwave an entire bag of broccoli, eat it, and experience no rise in sugar.
