Caprese Salad

Author: Kelly the Kitchen Kop


  • 1 pint organic if possible Cherry tomatoes cut in half, or larger tomatoes cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • 2-3 balls of the soft mozzarella cheese that you find in the deli or specialty cheese section cut into bite-sized pieces. (I've since had this with the cheese cut up even smaller than in the above picture and liked it better.)
  • A bunch of fresh basil--about 2 ounces rinsed (organic if possible) OR this basil pesto (you won't need much if any more dressing if you're using pesto)
  • Dressing: 1/2 cup REAL olive oil and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.


  • Toss together just before serving, otherwise the oil sets up when you put it in the frig and it no longer looks very appetizing!
