Easy Caprese Salad

I love Caprese salads, but I’m used to having them in their “full-sized version” with an entire slice of tomato, whole slice of mozzarella, and a basil leaf. In trying to cut back on calories, I came across a version that cut down on the calories and fat but NOT on the taste! I modified it a bit to my own liking, and I came up with a version that The Younger can help me with and that satisfies my craving! (I cut everything up, and The Younger got to arrange it in the bowl and add the vinegar. She had a great time and even tasted it, although the vinegar was a bit strong for her liking).

This would be a great for in the summer!

  • Sliced organic cherry tomatoes (4)
  • Chopped organic basil leaf (1)
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese (1 oz)
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinager
  • Mix the above ingredients and serve
