Caprese Salad with Olives

Caprese Salad is the perfect appetizer or main meal! Cherry tomatoes and mini mozzarella balls are tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette that marries gorgeously with fresh basil, pinenuts and greek black olives.

It is a great side dish, but you can also enjoy it as a light meal with a crusty slice of garlic bread! The secret for this recipe is to add fresh ingredients. This will give a unique taste!

The original italian Caprese salad is made with sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, fresh basil, and extra virgin olive oil. My approach in making this salad includes a "twist" by adding pinenuts, greek black olives and balsamic glaze. It takes only a few minutes to be made! it is super healthy, so tasty and is looking gorgeous! Don't you agree??
