Cucumber Caprese SaladPosted: February 7, 2014
I’m a sucker for caprese anything. I just love the way the mozzarella tastes so creamy against the acid of the balsamic vinegar and the tomatoes and basil adding a fresh, clean feeling. How can it get any better? Toss in some cucumber. The amazing crispness it brings is a wonderful addition to an already awesome dish!
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Tbs chipped fresh basil
1 cup fresh mozzarella, cubed
1 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut cucumbers into 1/4″ slices, then cut the slices in half. Cut tomatoes in 1/2. Dice avocado. Place cucumbers through avocado in a bowl and set aside.
To a small jar with a tight-fitting lid add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Close tightly and shake to combine.
Add dressing to salad and gently toss to combine.
