Insalata Caprese with Prosciutto and Arugula

insalata caprese with prosciutto and arugula

This simple insalata caprese is a new summer staple. Everything about this salad is just so fresh and packed with flavor. Just a lot of diced roma tomatoes and a bag of arugula, tossed with some good olive oil and a little bit of salt and pepper, YUM!

To add in a bit of more flavor and color (err white is not a color lol) to the salad, add in a few fresh mini balls of mozzarella cheese. The Ciliegine baby mozzarella balls are my fave!

Don’t get fooled that you won’t be full from this salad because you will, trust me! Add in a few slices of paper thin prosciutto di parma and you’ll have the ultimate summer salad!

Perfect for lunch or a late-afternoon dinner for two :)

Hope you’re having a fantastic evening! What’s on your dinner menu tonight?
