Summertime equals salads as there is no better season to relish in the bounty that nature provides. With minimal prep and tweaking, simple ingredients shine and taste epic. We have been playing around with the addition of fruit into some of our favorites, and the addition of these juicy strawberries from our garden into a traditional Caprese was a game changer. The sweetness of the fruit paired with the Meyer lemon dressing invented by the seven year old was a tangy counterpoint to the creamy cheese and acidic tomatoes. Sometimes, just a little fruit goes a long way!
Strawberry, Mozzarella, Tomato Caprese Salad
1 cup strawberries, sliced in half or quarters depending on size
3 tomatoes, diced
2 balls fresh mozzarella, diced
1 tablespoon basil, sliced into thin strips
¼ cup Olive Oil
½ Meyer Lemon, zested and juiced
2 tsp. honey
¼ tsp. salt
In a small jar make the dressing by first adding the lemon juice and salt. Shake. Add olive oil and honey and shake again. Set aside. Add the rest of the ingredients except the basil to a bowl, toss with dressing then sprinkle with basil.
