Caprese Salad with avocado and strawberries

Avocado Strawberry Caprese Salad

Strawberries and avocado make this simple caprese salad extra special!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup halved mini mozzarella balls
  • 1 ripe avocado pitted and diced
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed basil torn or chopped
  • Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the balsamic vinegar to a high simmer over medium heat. Stir, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the vinegar has thickened and reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place the strawberries, tomatoes, mozzarella, avocado, and basil in a shallow bowl or platter. Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Gently toss. Drizzle with reduced balsamic. Serve immediately.
  3. Note-Jeanine's recipe calls for 1/3 cup toasted pecans, but I left them out. If you don't want to reduce your own balsamic, you can use DeLallo's balsamic glaze. It is my favorite!
