Caprese Salad

This simple, 5-ingredient Caprese Salad is a classic recipe for summer!


  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced into 8 (1 oz each) slices
  • 2 medium red tomatoes, sliced into 8 slices
  • 8 large basil leaves
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons balsamic glaze, I use my store brand, Wegmans, but Trader Joe’s and many of the Italian food brands sell a similar glaze


  • Arrange the mozzarella slices, tomato slices, and basil leaves on a platter in an alternating pattern (i.e. a slice of mozzarella followed by a slice of tomato followed by a basil leaf, repeat). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic glaze. Each “stack” (1 slice mozzarella + 1 slice tomato + 1 basil leaf with oil and glaze) is a serving.
