Top 10: Unique Caprese Salads

Today I’m excited to share ten unique Caprese salads with you. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m pretty obsessed with Caprese salads. When I need to make lunch just for me that is usually what I make and also a favorite to bring to dinner parties. You just can’t go wrong in my opinion with the traditional Caprese: plump heirloom tomatoes thickly sliced layered with fresh mozzarella and basil and drizzled with reduced balsamic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Seriously, that is heaven right there.

But let’s be honest, when tomatoes are out of season (I am always so sad when this time rolls around) a traditional Caprese is just not the same. So what can we make for our lunches and dinner parties when tomatoes aren’t in peak season? Or what about when we want to dress our traditional Caprese up a bit? These are important questions, and don’t worry, I have you covered with these ten unique Caprese variations. Who knew mozzarella paired so well with so many other ingredients?
