Caprese Stack Salad
This is a non-recipe post. Listed below are the ingredients I used, but the amounts will vary greatly depending on how many you're serving.
  • Ripe tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella (I buy it in the gourmet cheese section at my local grocery store)
  • Ripe avocado (sliced or cut into rings) *optional
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Slice tomatoes, mozzarella (the brand I buy comes pre-semi sliced), and avocados.
  2. Layer (or stack), tomatoes, mozzarella, and avocados.
  3. Top with chiffonade of basil, or if you prefer, layer whole basil leaves w/tomatoes, mozzarella, and avocados.
  4. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic over salad and sprinkle with salt & pepper (to taste).
