California Caprese

A nice light lunch for two.  You could also serve it as an appetizer or with grilled chicken!  The perfect summer meal, because there is literally NO cooking involved.  The ingredients are the key here, so use fresh, ripe tomatoes and avocado.  Get the fresh mozzarella (the soft one) from the fancy cheese section.  You could also use Burrata for an extra fancy twist!

California Caprese


  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 4 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 Hass Avocado
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and Fresh Ground Pepper

Slice the tomatoes, cheese and avocado.  Arrange all pretty on a plate, alternating tomato, cheese and avocado.  Sprinkle fresh torn basil leaves on top, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic.  Sprinkle with just a little salt and fresh ground pepper and enjoy!
