Quick and simple Caprese Salad - an easy and delicious salad filled with salad, mozzarella, tomatoes, avocados and balsamic glaze!

It’s January – a month where many commit to eating better. I’m one of those people and every new year I try to eat less junk food and exercise more. As I’ve been trying to come up with “healthier” meals and lunch ideas, I remembered my love for Caprese recipes. The mozzarella, basil and tomato combo is one of my favorites and I knew I’d love a salad version which is what I am sharing with you today. This Quick Caprese Salad takes minutes to make, is delicious, and it’s filling!! I didn’t have chicken in mine, but that would also make a great addition. Instead, I decided to add some avocado because it’s my favorite and it’s a “good fat”. Right?! 😉

Like I mentioned, this recipe is very simple and is a great lunch or even dinner idea. It’s filled with your favorite salad, mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, avocado and balsamic glaze. In past Caprese recipes, readers have had a hard time finding the glaze, but I’ve been able to find it at most grocery stores near the vinegar or salad dressings. I’ll include a pic below of the glaze I typically use for all Caprese recipes. Here is what you’ll need to make the recipe…

Quick Caprese Salad
 
Ingredients
  • Salad
  • mozzarella balls
  • cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • avocados (sliced)
  • balsamic glaze
  • salt
  • garlic pepper
Instructions
  1. Begin by rinsing salad and adding it to a bowl.
  2. Add mozzarella balls, halved cherry tomatoes, salt and garlic pepper and toss.
  3. Add sliced avocados and drizzle on balsamic glaze right before serving. ENJOY!

I didn’t add serving size since you can add as little or as many ingredients as you need to make this salad. For about 4-6 people I’d add about 5-6 cups salad, 1 cup mozzarella balls, 1 cup cherry tomatoes, and 2 avocados. 😉
