I love unique caprese salads and am excited to share with you this Citrus Caprese recipe.  This dish is perfect for any family gathering or potluck; it was a hit at a recent family dinner of mine! This recipe uses a variety of citrus fruits from the farmers market including blood oranges, cara caras, paige tangerines and navel oranges, but any assortment of oranges would work just fine.  I can’t get enough of the amazing citrus this year- I am so busy snacking on them that I have to force myself to save some for using in recipes like this one. The balsamic reduction includes squeezed little tangerine juice which adds a nice flavor.  I’m so happy with the presentation and flavor of this dish, I hope you like it too!

Are you loving the citrus this year? What is your favorite citrus recipe? Will you give this citrus caprese a try?

Citrus Caprese

Citrus Caprese


  • 16 oz fresh mozzarella slices
  • 4 oranges*, sliced into citrus rounds
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 C balsamic vinegar
  • 1 paige tangerine (for juice)
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • * can be a mix and match of your faves, I used a combo of blood oranges, cara caras, and navel oranges


  1. Heat the balsamic vinegar and juice from 1 small tangerine over medium heat until it starts bubbling, then reduce heat to medium-low until it thickens but be careful that it doesn’t burn. If you dip a spoon in it and drizzle the balsamic back into the pan and it has a thick syrup-like consistency instead of a watery consistency, then you are done. Be careful not to burn it (I have made this mistake many many times!) Take off the heat and set aside.
  2. Arrange the orange slices, heirloom tomato slices, basil and mozzarella on a platter. Drizzle the balsamic reduction over the top.
  3. Enjoy!
