I’ve been wanting to make a keto caprese salad, one of my favorite summer salads, for a while, so I finally got around to it. The salad is very simple to make. The dressing is made with just one ingredient – blackberries!
Summer is written all over this fast and delicious caprese salad!
Summer meals are my favorite! Why? Fresh, gleaming ingredients are often the focus of attention. Many seasonal dishes are also simple and fast to make. This blackberry balsamic-topped caprese keto salad is no exception. Because of the brilliant red tomatoes, soft mozzarella, and chopped basil leaves, it’s very lovely. And the caprese salad’s appearance is not only lovely, but also tasty!
This sugar-free blackberry balsamic vinegar is simple to prepare.
Sugar is abundant in traditional balsamic glaze. Many kinds, in fact, include up to 10 grams of carbs per tablespoon….. Wow! I decided to create a ketone-friendly version of balsamic vinaigrette since it goes well with caprese salad. Only one carbohydrate per tablespoon in this delightfully sweet and perfectly tart blackberry balsamic!

With a wonderful blackberry balsamic dressing, this traditional caprese salad becomes even more keto!
- 3 tomatoes, medium-sized (or 3 large rump tomatoes)
- Fresh mozzarella cheese ball, 8 oz.
- 10-12 leaves of sweet basil, thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin) (more if needed)
- flakes of sea salt, to taste
- to taste, freshly ground pepper
Drizzle of balsamic blackberries:
- Brombeer, 1/3 cup (approx. 10 bears)
- a quarter cup of wine wine, wine, wine
- 10 ste liquid droplets (or more or less, depending on the taste)
- *Optional thickener: a sprinkle of xanthan gum (use only if you want a thick glaze).
To make the caprese salad, combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Cut the tomatoes and fresh mozzarella into half-inch thick slices (I cut the mozzarella balls in half beforehand). Arrange tomato and mozzarella slices on a dish in an alternate pattern. On top, strew the basil. Season with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
Allow to cool before serving. To taste, drizzle with blackberry balsamic sauce.
To make the blackberry balsamic sauce, combine the blackberries, balsamic vinegar, and sugar.
In a blender, combine the blackberries and red wine vinegar. Whisk the blackberries with the vinegar until they dissolve. To remove seeds, skins, and other foreign objects, strain the mixture over a sieve (or mesh). To taste, sweeten the vinegar mixture with stevia. Add a pinch of xanthan gum and whisk vigorously to mix and thicken for a frosting-like consistency.

Presented to you by
- If you don’t have access to a colander or mesh, you can make your own. Tights and coffee filters, in fact, are lifesavers for many individuals.
- Fold the leaves like sheets of paper to chop fresh basil. The stack should next be gently rolled into a loose cigar form. To create thin strips, cut the roll crosswise with a very sharp knife.
- Choosing perfectly ripe tomatoes may be challenging. Unripe tomatoes are somewhat lighter in color, whereas juicy tomatoes are more compact. You may also feel the bottom of the stem to see whether the tomato is ripe. The aroma of ripe tomatoes should be robust, somewhat sweet, and earthy.
