Who doesn’t love a Caprese salad? Is it the pop of a ripe cherry tomato, the salty “mozzarella,” the freshness of the basil or the tang of balsamic vinegar? In any case, it all says “summer!” For a delicious little spin on the traditional salad add creamy avocados. It takes this salad from yum to OMG! You are going to love this insanely easy, fresh avocado salad!
- 2 large avocados, pitted
- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 4 ounces diced vegan mozzarella
(We use Miyoko’s, it’s spendy but worth it!)
- Italian seasoning
- balsamic vinegar
- extra-virgin olive oil
- sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
- fresh basil
Scoop out the avocados. Dice up the avocados and set aside.
Stack the basil leaves, then roll them tightly, slice the leaves perpendicular to the roll.
In a large bowl, mix the diced avocados with tomatoes, mozzarella, Italian seasoning, basil leaves, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.
Divide salad among 4 avocado half skins and serve.
The pictures just do not do this justice. It is so bright and colorful….and delicious!
