Low carb cold appetizers
It’s always good to have a few options that you can quickly prepare without cooking. Cold appetizers can be a lifesaver when you are short on time. Here are our favourite low carb appetizer ideas that will fit every party.
Keto charcuterie board
Charcuterie boards are one of the easiest low-carb appetizers you can make. This classic can feature meat roll-ups, various types of cheese, nuts, olives, and pickled vegetables. You can put it together just before your guests arrive or have it ready in the fridge ahead of time.
Veggie sticks with a dip
All you need to do for this one is to cut your favourite vegetables into sticks and arrange them nicely on a serving plate with a dip in the middle. You can go with sour cream with herbs or your favourite pesto.
The most popular low carb fruit, avocado, is a really convenient base for a cold appetizer. With its rich taste, avocado can be combined with salmon, tuna, or cream cheese to make a great looking treat. Simply cut the avocado in half and put the second ingredient where the pit used to be.
