This pregnancy has been going good so far and as I mentioned before…I have been craving Cucumbers, but I have also been craving tomatoes! This simple salad has been a delicious and healthy choice for me as it provides lots of protein and calcium from the cheese and lots of fruit/veggie servings from the tomatoes…which even though I know they are a fruit, I still think of them as a veggie!
I know you have probably all made Caprese salads before, but this is a simple way to make a single serving for yourself or a nice side salad for a dinner party! It is a great partner for pizza or garlic bread, or soup! I hope you will enjoy!
- Grape Tomatoes
- small Mozzarella balls called Caglione (after a town in italy!) Any Mozzarella would work!
- Fresh Basil Leaves
- 1 Tbls Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Tbls Olive Oil
- Italian Seasoning
- Garlic Powder
The colors of this salad are SOOOO pretty that it was hard not to take too many redundant pictures! Please indulge me just a bit!
All you need to do is simply rinse the tomatoes, and cut the mozzarella into bite size pieces and gently chop your basil! Then mix all the goodness together in a bowl!
Sprinkle on your seasoning to taste! I like lots of the italian seasoning as it adds a nice burst of herby flavor! Then drizzle on your balsamic and olive oil and toss the whole mixture to combine!
Now try not to eat the whole bowl in 2 minutes! Savor it and maybe have a piece of rosemary garlic bread to dip in the juice at the bottom of the bowl! YUM! I am hungry right now!
