Low Carb Herbed Caprese Mini-Skewers: A Keto Appetizer
My husband and I came up with these mini-skewers for a neighborhood party last summer. They are amazingly delicious and versatile.
Next time, I would like to try adding fresh basil leaves to give them a little more color.
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 12 Servings
- 4 TBS Organic Olive Oil (extra virgin (all of this oil won't end up on the mozzarella but we need enough to marinate them in))
- 1 lb Whole Milk Fresh Mozzerella Balls
- .5 lb Sliced Salami (Cut into quarters)
- 1 lb Grape Tomato
- 1 tsp basil
- .5 tsp Salt
- 1 drop Taste of Italy Young Living Essential Oil Blend (optional)
- basil leaves (fresh, not pictured)
In a 2 cup small glass bowl, combine olive oil, basil, salt and Taste of Italy Essential oil. Blend.
Add the Whole Milk Mozzarella Balls and let marinade anywhere from 2-24 hours.
When you are ready to assemble. First rinse and dry the grape tomatoes and make sure your salami is cut into quarters.
Then one toothpick at a time, slide on a mozzarella ball, salami, basil leaf (optional) and grape tomato. Fold the salami as you put it on the toothpick as pictured.
You can make these up to one day ahead and store in a tightly covered container.
Serve on a pretty platter or from a container. This makes a great potluck dish or finger-food appetizer.
