A few weeks ago we were invited to my in-laws for a deck party (you know because we are still in the yellow phase). Patrick wanted a Cuban dip that I had made in the past and honestly, I couldn’t be bothered by the process.
Instead, inspiration was on Pinterest for a Low Carb Cuban on a Stick. To make the process go as fast as possible we found pre-cubed swiss at the grocery store and used pre-sliced deli ham, popped the lip on a jar of pickles, and called it a day!

Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 0 minutes | Total time: 15 minutes
Servings:** Depends on how many you are serving (I believe we had about 2 1/2 dozen for our little patio party.
1 – Jar of Pickles – we used Baby Jerkins
1 – Bag of Pre-Cubed Swiss or 2 to 3 blocks of swiss to cut into blocks
6 – Slices of Ham that were cut into strips and ribbon folded onto the toothpick
Dijon mustard for dipping (or any mustard of choice)
You’ll Also Need:
Toothpicks to build your low carb appetizer
1. Cube cheese if needed
2. Take a stack of deli ham and slice into 1 inch or small strips to fold into a ribbon pattern before slipping toothpick through
3. Once the deli ham is folded into a ribbon pattern slip toothpick through the center of the meat and place a cube of swiss for the base.
4. Take one pickle out of the jar and slip onto the other end of the toothpick and place it on a platter or plate
5. Serve mustard in the middle of the patter if you’d like for the option to dip or serve in a jar with a spoon to self-serve the mustard.
