Lightened and Reinvented Caprese Salad

Lightened and Reinvented Caprese Salad

Fight the Fat Foodie 220

"For my version, I tried to keep the spirit and flavors of the original, if in slightly different proportion, and accentuated them, I believe, with the fresh coolness of some cucumber. I used crumbled goat cheese instead of mozzarella. This let me get cheese in every bite but in a much lighter way. I also used a very light hand on the olive oil, just sprinkling the salad with it and the balsamic vinegar. Each serving of this salad is only 78 calories with 6 grams of fat and 1 of fiber!"
