Fancy Caprese Salad with Avocado & Pine nuts
Sliced tomatoes with fresh mozzarella is certainly nothing new......but, the addition of a ripe avocado and some toasted pine nuts brings another element of deliciousness to this classic salad. Add a little drizzle of balsamic glaze and you're done! It's easy-peasy, tastes amazing, and is visually beautiful. I have to give credit to my husband on this photo. Didn't he do a nice job assembling?
I don't have ingredient measurements....just wing it! Make this now while tomatoes are still good and juicy!!!
Ripe Jersey tomatoes or ripe heirloom tomatoes, sliced
Fresh mozzarella, sliced
Fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
Pine nuts, toasted if you like
Ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
Balsamic glaze, store bought
Arrange sliced tomato, mozzarella slice and then avocado slice on a plate; repeat until all ingredients are used up (arrange them in any pattern you like). Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and fresh basil leaves. Drizzle with as much balsamic glaze as you like. Enjoy!!
