Tomato Basil Mozzarella Bites

Whenever we had a potluck family gathering growing up, my mom was sure to bring one of her three dishes – Garlic Pulled Chicken, Mom’s Cabbage Salad, or this Tomato Basil Mozzarella Bites and her version of an caprese salad!

The origin of this dish is actually Italian, but my mom always made a delicious version of it that happens to be low-carb/keto friendly!

It’s super easy to prepare and the tomatoes are an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamin C & K!

Not to forget, the fresh mozzarella provides the low-carb/keto energy you need to keep your body rolling!

These start with the soft welcoming texture of fresh mozzarella followed by juicy tomatoes and infused with flavors of salted pepper basil and olive oil.

My mom’s version also adds a touch of Soy Sauce to give it a little Asian flair!

There is no cooking involved to make this recipe and just a few basic ingredients that should be available at your local supermarket!

Just like in your traditional caprese salad, you start with your tomato, basil and mozzarella stacks.  But what makes this different is the substitution of the balsamic vinegar with some Soy Sauce.

This little adjustment gives this dish more punch with the flavors!

So next time you are looking to change up your snack game, give this quick n easy low-carb/keto recipe a try!

This dish is low-carb/keto friendly at around ~0.5g of carb per slice.
