Caprese Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Vanessa

Courtesy of KCStar (my local newspaper). I love Caprese salad....specially the one at Macaroni Grill. I will be making this soon!!! The only thing I would add is balsamic vinegar...but that is because I LOVE IT. It's optional!!!

I concur with the suggestion to add some balsamic. I put a 50/50 combination of balsamic and EVOO into a jar with a pinch of salt and 1 tsp brown sugar. Shake well in the jar, and then drizzle on the salad. Delicious!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut tomatoes into 1/4-in. slices and arrange on a plate, alternating tomatoes with mozzarella slices.
  2. Scatter basil ribbons over the tomatoes and mozzarella.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. NOTE: I would add a bit of balsamic vinegar when I serve it on my plate because it's like the one at Macaroni and Grill.
