Caprese Salad

23 Sep

Mouth watering caprese salad. It's colorful and delicious.

It’s so easy to get into a boring routine of making the same dinners each week. If you’re like me—you have your quick fix dinner favorites that you rotate between each week.

I altered a caprese salad recipe that I found in a magazine. The ingredients were easy to find, it didn’t take long to make and my family really liked it.


1 tomato, sliced thin

1 cucumber, sliced

1 hunk of mozzarella cheese, sliced thick

Basil leaves (I found a pack of them at Target in the produce aisle)

Dressing of your choice (we used Italian Dressing or Balsamic Vinaigrette)


All you have to do is slice up the first three ingredients and wash the basil leaves. Alternate the slices of tomato, cucumber, cheese and basil on a serving plate like in the picture above. I didn’t put dressing on the salad. Instead, I put the bottles of dressing on the table and let everyone pick one out to drizzle on top.

Best of all, we used the leftovers from the salad to make sandwiches for lunch during the week. None of it went to waste and it spiced up our dinner routine.
