Super Easy Caprese Salad {Tasty Thursday}

March 12, 2014

I haven’t shared a recipe in a while and this one comes thanks to my friend Beth Ann at It’s Just Life, who gave me the idea to make my super easy but super delicious Caprese Salad this past weekend. In fact, it was so delicious that Ashley ate most of it by herself!

1 pint of cherry tomatoes

1 small container of fresh mozerella ( I like using the little balls.)

fresh basil

balsamic vinegar

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Start by slicing the tomatoes in half and put in a bowl. Do the same with the mozzarella balls (or cut a big chunk of it into small cubes) and add them to the bowl as well. Then chop up some fresh basil – I use quite a bit ( at least 10 good size leaves) because we love the taste. Then drizzle olive oil on top by going around the bowl a few times. Do the same with the balsamic vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste and stir the whole thing around a few times to mix all the ingredients together. Enjoy!!!

It’s already on the menu again – I just need to stop for some more fresh mozzarella. Ash cannot wait! I may need to make a double-batch so we can all enjoy a little extra.

P.S. I also enjoy this on a bed of lettuce with some grilled chicken breast on the side.

    that looks soooo tasty!
    and I agree with the grilled chicken on the side. I think this will be my go-to summer salad.

    that is, if I ever get a summer πŸ™‚

      Oh, I’m sure your summer will come and with it your beautiful garden will come alive again – cannot wait for the pics. I can’t seem to keep this salad around these days. The minute I make it, it’s gone!

    I agree—a double recipe is necessary and I always load it up with basil—love that stuff and can never get enough of it!!! Thanks for the shout out!

      Anytime! I’ve made this three times in the past few days and last night we had a friend over and he couldn’t stop eating it. He finished the whole thing! Guess that’s a pretty good sign, huh? πŸ™‚
