Caprese salad is one of my favorite fresh spring salads. I usually make it stacked with alternating slices of fresh mozzarella, basil, and beefsteak tomatoes, but I just couldn’t resist these beautiful mutli-color cherry tomatoes (not to mention it is easier to eat this way). This is a perfect appetizer salad for entertaining, because it only takes 5 minutes to make, and it looks so chic.
1 pint cherry tomatoes (I used red, yellow, and orange)
1 cup fresh mini mozzarella balls
1 stem fresh basil (chopped finely)
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar (I used the aged variety)
1 tsp Herb de Provence
Salt and Pepper to taste
To prepare, simply mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, and garnish with basil leaves. That’s it!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
