Caprese Salad

I love tomatoes, especially in the summer, when there is an abundance of fresh tomatoes from the garden or locally grown.

We eat mozzarella caprese a lot, and while I love caprese, I don’t always have big slicer tomatoes.

I usually only grow smaller tomatoes in my garden, like cherry tomatoes.

For this recipe, you need:

~ tomatoes (any size – you can cut up larger tomatoes into pieces
~ olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or a balsamic vinaigrette
~ fresh basil
~ fresh mozzarella cheese
~ salt & pepper

To assemble your salad, cut your tomatoes as desired. For a quick salad, I leave cherry tomatoes whole.

Cube your fresh mozzarella.

Chop your basil.

Dress the salad with a balsamic vinaigrette, with salt and pepper to taste.

Toss, and enjoy!

    I’d like to start branching out from my two kinds of salad tossed Or chef. This looks scrumptious, although, I’ve known what the “green” was. Now it will be on my grocery list!

    It’s good to leave the cherry tomatoes whole but for the sake of my little kids, I cut them in half. Thanks for this delicious recipe

    I love this salad, so simple yet so delicious. I would love to try this with cherry tomatoes instead to add some natural sweet flavor.
