Caprese Salad with Greens and Basil Vinaigrette
Quick, Fresh-tasting and Delicious!
This Caprese Salad with Greens and Basil Vinaigrette is a literal taste of Summer!
It can be made all year round but it tastes best with really fresh produce and is a perfect way to use up garden basil and enjoy garden or farmer’s market tomatoes!
For years, this was our go-to Summer salad!
We served it whenever we had guests for dinner, lunch or a barbecue and everyone loved it!
For some reason, we stopped making it in recent years but I’m bringing it back this Summer! Have already made it several times and can’t get enough!
So let’s make it!
It couldn’t be quicker or easier, coming together in less than 15 minutes!
All you need is:
Lettuce of choice (I’ve used green or red leaf lettuce, spring mix and romaine depending on availability and freshness)
Cherry tomatoes (the fresher, the better!)
Fresh Mozzarella Balls (or a larger fresh mozzarella, cut into pieces), and
Easy Basil Vinaigrette!
By now, you’ve probably realized that the star of this salad is the Basil Vinaigrette!
This salad showcases summer produce and is a total crowd pleaser! And you'll want to pour the Basil Vinaigrette on everything! You can make the vinairgrette a day before serving, just bring to room temperature and stir well.
