6 Avocado Caprese Salad

My favorite "first course" at a restaurant is a Caprese salad . . . 
the mozzerella and tomato combined with basil and fine olive oil is just heaven on earth for me!
I have been getting our tomatoes and avocados from local farmers lately and have been eating them together at least once a day. . . 
so when I had some leftover mozzarella from a previous recipe, I paired a caprese salad with avocado and . . . 
made this beauty! :-) 
Avocado Caprese Salad
Tomato
Avocado
Mozzarella
Basil (real is always better) 
Olive oil
Pepper
Slice the tomato, avocado, and mozzarella and stack in a row with basil leaves in between (or sprinkle basil on top). Pour olive oil over the salad and crack some pepper on top!  
Pin It!

    1. Great that you linked in to Food on Friday. I have put the recipe title in for you. It would be great if you were to pop back in a day or so to look at the collection of recipes and click on any that take your fancy. Have a good day.
