Easy Peasy Caprese Salad

Remember Ashley from Dishes? She's baaaack! Last time she showed us a pretty yummy way to make squash that would be good any day, not just for Thanksgiving. This time she is showing us a yummy salad. I don't know what it is about salads, but I go through phases where I LOVE to eat them, then don't care if I ever see another one, then back to loving them. I'm currently in a love this is perfect timing! Thankfully Ashley has agreed to grace us with something new and different once a month, so you'll see her again!


Easy Peasy Caprese Salad By Ashley from Dishes

Here’s a fancy salad that’s super easy in a pinch and traditional Italian. Pairs well will any pasta, or have it by itself for a satisfying snack.

First, the ingredients:

Mozzarella Cheese medallions


Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar


Salt and Pepper

Optional- Spinach and Chicken

If using spinach, or some other type of lettuce, make a bed for your caprese.

Layer sliced tomatoes and mozzarella medallions on bed, alternating. Then, tuck in 1-2 basil leaves, or to taste, around the tomatoes. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and vinegar, and top with salt and pepper.

If desired, serve with bread for a filling lunch, or top with chicken for a protein kick.



Thank you Ashley!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next month!!
