Avocado Caprese Salad

Super quick and delicious, adding avocado to this classic Italian dish gives a nutritious boost and makes a festive side dish around the holiday.

Makes: 2 servings               Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped in half
  • 3/4 cup bocconcini, chopped in half
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 basil leaves, chopped

Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a bowl until evenly coated with oil and salt. Add more salt to taste if necessary. Top with chopped basil.

Step 2: Serve immediately. If you are not eating right away, I'd suggest coating the avocado in lime juice before adding to the salad. This will prevent it from turning brown.
