Berry Caprese Salad

Summer is almost over but I'm not ready for autumn spices... Don't worry, there will be plenty of meat stews and pumpkin recipes in the upcoming season! :-) So, if you don't mind, I'll focus on a couple more summer recipes featuring my favourite fruits - berries. Berries are perfect for making healthy low-carb, paleo-friendly treats and surprisingly good in savoury meals.

This salad is a variation of three of my existing recipes: Grilled Halloumi With Strawberry & Cucumber Salsa, Caprese Skewers and a more traditional Capri salad (recipe from my apps & book).

I was planning to post this recipe for over a year but I knew it needed some fine-tuning. Originally, it included raspberries but the mix of different flavours didn't turn out as expected and I decided to omit them from this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Peel and slice the cucumber.
  2. Wash and slice the strawberries.
    Make sure you get your cucumber and strawberries organic, they are on the Dirty Dozen Plus list for 2014!
  3. Place both in a serving bowl.
  4. Add mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Mix the balsamic vinegar (or fruit vinegar) and extra virgin olive oil.
  6. Pour over the salad and add freshly chopped basil. I've tried different berries (see photo below) - avoid raspberries, strawberries work best in this recipe.

Made it yesterday and was surprised how well the ingredients go together. I also added half an avocado because it was not enough for me - Delish!!!

What a great idea for summer salad! How about the fruit vinegar? Do you use any sweetener in it?

Thanks Katie! Yes, it's better if you use sweetened fruit vinegar. I use stevia or erythritol to sweeten mine up Smile
