Caprese Salad (Keto-Friendly)
November 04, 2019
Inspiring daydreams of the sun-soaked isle of Capri where it originated, caprese salad epitomizes the essence of Italy's culinary sensibilities: Use the freshest real ingredients, arrange them artfully on a plate, and let them shine. When such perfect creations exist, it seems almost disrespectful to alter their natural states with cooking acrobatics or even the introduction of heat—you can practically hear the Italian nonnas shaking their heads in disdain.
This keto caprese salad embraces the natural beauty of the main ingredients, accentuating them with a scatter of salt, fresh black pepper, and high-quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The sweet, juicy burst of a vine-ripened tomato, the briny creaminess of very fresh cheese, and the subtle sweetness of just-picked basil leaves topped with rich, lightly briny extra virgin olive oil make a delicate, balanced, nuanced forkful.
