So I must confess, originally I was trying to do a copy-cat Olive Garden dressing…
I love Caprese. Caprese appetizers, soups, sandwiches, salads….anything. It’s just such a FRESH and crisp flavor! I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately, so I’m trying to have a salad for (or with) lunch every day. To stick to this, I have to make sure my salad’s are fun, delicious and QUICK. One of my favs is this Caprese Salad, and it’s definitely easy to make, yet full of flavor! With or without the balsamic drizzle, it’s a winner!
See, it’s just so PRETTY!!!
2 cups fresh Greens (spinach is good, or basil leaves)
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes, sliced (I do in half)
1/2 cup Mozzarella cubes
1 tsp. Basil
Chop the greens of your choice (don’t you hate trying to eat a salad with huge leaves? I do!).
Toss in the sliced tomatoes and mozzarella cubes.
Sprinkle with a bit of basil, then drizzle with a combo of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I usually mix my balsamic and oil together THEN drizzle, but it works either way.
Enjoy your tasty and healthy salad!
Note: I try to find a nice, soft Mozzarella, as it tends to taste the best with this.
