Chopped Caprese Salad

chopped caprese salad

Being such a smartie pants, I thought that pairing a light salad with a roasted pork tenderloin would counteract the heaviness that is meat and prevent me from falling into a massive meat-induced coma. Oh boy, was I wrong! As usual, I plopped myself onto my boyfriend and fell right asleep :)

This has to be the simplest and yummiest salad  I’ve ever made! I really can’t call this a recipe because well… it’s so easy! Here are the suggested instructions and it can be made in any order your heart desires….

INGREDIENTS: tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil leaves, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, s+p


STEP 1: chop the tomatoes into bite size chunks (remove the insides)

a ball of mozzarella cheese

STEP 2: cut the cheese into cubes

fresh leaves from my basil plant

STEP 3: chiffonade the basil

STEP 4: combine all the ingredients in a bowl and pour olive oil and balsamic vinegar and season with s+p; toss well

KITCHEN TIP: definitely season to taste, feel free to add more balsamic vinegar!

Shouldn’t this classic be on everyone’s kitchen repertoire? :)

Until the next date night, xoxo.
