Caprese Salad

Caprese salad is fresh, enjoyable, and full of delicious flavors. I chose to serve these in martini glasses to make them more festive and enjoyable (at least from a visual standpoint.) I didn't measure but these are approximates of the ingredients I used.

1 pint of grape tomatoes
1 pint of cherry tomatoes
1 container of mini fresh mozzarella balls (I bought the kind in seasonings and oil and highly recommend it)
Fresh basil (about 20 leaves, finely chopped)
Olive oil (about 2 tablespoons)
Balsamic vinegar (about 1 tablespoon)

1- Toss all of the above ingredients together in a large bowl.
2- Serve immediately or store in the fridge for a couple hours prior to serving.


  1. i love the idea of serving them in fun glasses.

  2. Great idea serving it up in martini glasses!

  3. Mmm... I love caprese salad. So cute in the glasses!
