Strawberry Caprese Salad

strawberry caprese salad
I picked up some beautiful strawberries at the market yesterday, and I knew I wanted to eat them fresh so I settled on adding them to a salad. I didn’t have much time to make my lunch this morning, so I wanted to do something easy that I could literally throw together. Strawberry caprese  salad is as easy to make as putting the ingredients into a bowl and tossing them with a vinaigrette. I made a balsamic vinaigrette, but the strawberry-poppyseed vinaigrette would work well too!  If you want to watch me make it, head on over to SnapChat 😉  (@FoodieInNewYork).


The sweetness of the strawberries is balanced by the acidity from the tomatoes and the balsamic vinegar, making this salad a perfect balance of flavors. Make sure to add a pinch of salt to your vinaigrette–the salt really helps meld the flavors and bring out the fresh flavor of the juicy, ripe tomatoes.
