Caprese Salad Recipe

This simple summer salad is probably one of my favorite salad recipes ever. I just adore the taste combination of sweet tomatoes and basil with the tang of balsamic vinegar and the creaminess of the mozzarella cheese. Plus, it’s an incredibly fast & easy dish to make, and it’s pretty diet friendly. It’s also a great way to get some vitamins, calcium and antioxidants into your diet! And each serving has just a 3 Points (5 Points for two servings). So, while you can’t go hog wild and eat the whole thing, it’s still a healthy, diet-friendly salad to enjoy in controlled portions. This tasty tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad makes a great healthy side dish recipe to serve along with a hearty sandwich or healthy grilled chicken. Though, it’s such a versatile recipe, you can really serve this with just about any meal. It also makes a great appetizer recipe!

    regarding this caprese salad, which type of mozzarella am I supposed to buy? The kind that come in balls in the water?

    • Yes, that's the kind. You should be able to find it at just about any grocery store.

  2. So nice to have you back on a daily basis. This one look positively sinful even if I wasn't trying to lose weight! Sometimes it's all in the presentation, sometimes it really does look that good. This looks like the latter. Do you take your own photos or do you have a professional photographer do it for you?
