A Caprese Salad is Keto already!
My love affair with the humble Caprese salad started in 2013 when I went to Italy. It’s funny because that trip was me and my girlfriend celebrating our 10 year anniversary and I fell in love with food in Italy. The Caprese is just so simple, fresh and high quality ingredients make the best version. That’s a truth about food itself, a few, but high quality ingredients and you have magic on a plate. This is my take on the Caprese using the best local stuff I can find. Enjoy!
Make it original
You can also go the original way and use regular tomato and buffalo mozzarella. The only thing you do different is your slice the tomato and the mozzarella and layer them one over the other and pour that dressing over. Easy peasy really. There are people who add avocado to this to up the fat content but I’m not sure how the Italians will react to that. Either way do your thing and enjoy!
You can find more Keto salad recipes in the Keto salad section of my website.
I’ve not calculated the macros for this because you can pretty easily just input the raw ingredients by weight into your app since there are hardly any. Also if you decide to use regular tomato or mozzarella instead then just add them depending on the weight and the brand you buy. If you are still confused please watch my Keto 101 video series where I explain how to do this.
