I absolutely LOVE Caprese Salad… I wanted to create a spin on the salad for the dinner I was preparing for this year’s Diner En Blanc event. (If you’ve never been, check this link out: www.dinerenblanc.com) Anyway, I headed over to Pinterest to get a little inspo. I saw a few examples but this is one I absolutely fell in love with.
Fresh mozzarella cheese, peppery basil and plump tomatoes drizzled in olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette…oh my gooooodness! My mouth is watering even now! I added some turkey pepperoni to give it a bit of saltiness as well. Stack it all on a toothpick and go to town!
This dish is quick and inexpensive to prepare. Those are key words, especially when you want to save money and don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen before it’s time to entertain. The skewers can also be prepared in advance – you can reserve the olive oil/vinaigrette drizzle for right before you serve.
I promise this dish will be a huge hit and it is quite filling so don’t eat too many at once! If you get a chance to try out this dish, let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy!
