I made this for lunch today. Heaven in a bowl. NOTE: Honestly, I ate half as is and half with a small amount of quality balsamic drizzled over the top. Even more delicious.
Lovely! I made these into little kabobs. Placed on a plate, drizzled a bit of olive oil & balsamic vinegar & then sprinkled the basil on top. Everyone loved them.
Love Caprese! I served this salad in a small dessert dish with shredded romaine on the bottom and the Caprese Salad on top. A splash of white balsamic would be great with this.
I make Caprese all the time. I chop the tomatoes and the mozzarella and tear the basil so it's easier to have a forkful with all 3 ingredients. It is also MUCH better with a balsamic vinaigrette instead of just olive oil. I make this with olive oil from Frances Mays' estate and a wonderful quality balsamic from the vinegar store. There isn't anything better.
This salad rocks. We made it for Christmas dinner, and even people who thought they wouldn't like a "basil" salad, loved it! Defiantly a five star salad, and I encourage anyone who has never tried a caprese salad to try it.
I had to make this recipe twice this week!! My BF had some left overs and asked me to make some for his lunch box!!! of course I did!!! Added balsamic vinegar delish
Followed the recipe and added fresh avocado chunks. yum! My kids and hubby liked it. :) Now that I think about it, some black olives would have been good too.
