CAPRESE-INSPIRED SALAD

This salad would be great to spoon on top of chicken breasts, baked fish fillets, or on top of burgers.  It’s easy to put together and the addition of the white balsamic vinegar keeps it pretty!

Add some marinated artichoke hearts and brined olives for a different taste.

I get my white balsamic at Trader Joe’s – inexpensive, but really, really good.

2 large tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 cucumber, diced

1 red onion, diced

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1/2 cup fresh Perlini mozzarella balls (the tiny ones!) or diced fresh mozzarella

2 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (I like the white in this so it doesn’t discolor)

Kosher salt and black pepper

Combine tomatoes, cucumber, onion, basil and cheese. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad and serve. Makes six servings.
