Mini Caprese Salad

We’re gonna make this quick tonight.

The weather is so beautiful and the deck is calling my name.

Dinner tonight is simple. Burgers and side salads.

This is one of them.

So simple…but necessary to share.

I found it in a little corner of a Cooking Light magazine. After making it, I knew I had to write about it. I was panicking today as I had all these magazines around and couldn’t find the recipe.

But I did and now I share.

We’ve all had Caprese salads with the slices of Mozzarella and tomatoes.

This is cuter…and sometimes you just need cuter.

The dressing is light and enhances the freshness of the tomatoes and basil. Instead of balsamic vinegar, you use white wine vinegar with a bit of olive oil along with salt and pepper. You could toss in a little pasta if you just want it for dinner.


Deck is calling.

Later my friends.

    This site has published this recipe and your photo. I’m guessing they don’t have permission.

    I am in love with the combination of mozzarella, basil and tomato. Such an easy and simple recipe, but so striking. I would definitely toss in some linguine or spaghetti. Great recipe!
