Caprese Salad Bites are an easy appetizer for a casual gathering or the perfect snack when you’re looking for something sweet and tangy.
Traditionally, caprese salad consists of fresh mozzarella, slices of tomato, and fresh basil, topped with salt and a drizzle of olive oil. While not traditional, balsamic vinegar lifts a caprese salad to a new level and has become a fan favorite of diners everywhere.
Unfortunately, balsamic vinegar has too many carbs per tablespoon for a keto diet. If I really wanted to I could write in those extra 3 carbs during my food planning sessions, and they would be totally worth it. But, I don’t always have room for the extra carbs.
A balsamic vinegar reduction, however, is another sad story for the keto dieter. Yes it tastes amazing on caprese salad, but sadly those carbs won’t evaporate. For this reason, when you reduce the vinegar you’re just increasing the number of carbs in a tablespoon, making it a far less keto friendly condiment than before.
