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.

  • 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)
  • Toothpicks
  • 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.
