Avocado caprese salad

Avocado caprese salad

I have had a caprese salad before. I was watching and episode of Sex and the city and they were eating it, sooooo seeing as I was a huge fan way back in the day, I decided to try it out.

I loved it, okay maybe I liked it to a certain point and then along the way I got tired of the basil leaves, then the tomatoes and finally I just stopped eating the salad all together.

While I was reading one of Mary Berry’s recipe books,  I came across a recipe for avocado caprese salad.

At first, I didn’t want to make it and then after a long debate with myself, I decided oh what the heck, I have two ripe avocadoes in the fridge, I might as well make it.

The end result, was mind blowing, from the appearance to the taste.

It tasted soo much different to the normal caprese salad that I had given up soo long ago.

Ingredients:

  • 4 x tomatoes, thickly sliced.
  • Salt and pepper.
  • 250g x mozzarella, cut into rounds.
  • 2 x avocadoes, sliced.
  • 2 x tbsp. lemon juice.
  • 4 x tbsp. olive oil.
  • Basil sprigs

Method:

  • Place tomatoe slices in a bowl and toss with some seasoning and set aside.
  • In another bowl, toss the avocado slices and lemon juice together and set aside.
  • On a platter arrange the tomatoe slices and cheese slices together.
  • Place the avocadoe slices ontop of the salad.
  • Sprinkle basil springs over the top.
  • Finally drizzle the olive oil over the top of the salad.
