Avacado Caprese salad!

Avacado Caprese salad!

Summertime is officially upon us, not just by date, but by HEAT!!!  This is an easy salad to throw together for a party or if you need some delicious carbs in your day.  You can see the full recipe here

AVACADO STRAWERRY CAPRESE – ohsheglows blog

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup (135 g) hulled and sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup (160 g) grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1/3 cup (8 g) loosely packed basil leaves, chiffonade cut
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pink Himalayan salt or fine sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Toasted sesame seeds or chopped pecans, for serving

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar to a simmer over medium heat. Once the vinegar starts to simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 6 to 10 minutes, uncovered, until the vinegar thickens, and reduces in volume by half. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, add the strawberries, tomatoes, avocado, and basil into a large shallow bowl.
  3. Drizzle on the oil and gently toss until the veggies are coated. Season generously with salt and pepper and toss again just briefly.
  4. Scatter on your desired amount of toasted seeds or nuts. Drizzle on all of the balsamic reduction.
  5. Serve immediately. This salad is definitely best enjoyed fresh, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for a few hours if necessary.
