Caprese Pasta Salad

Caprese Salad is one of all-time favorite things. So I naturally gravitated to this recipe. It’s a nice light side dish, perfect for a warm summer day…….ahhh who am I kidding? I would eat this morning, noon and night, every season of the year. Yes, it’s THAT good!

  • 2 cups of Pasta, cooked and drained
  • 1 container of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 container of Bocconcini cheese
  • ½ cup of fresh basil, chopped finely
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of garlic

1. In a large bowl, toss together the pasta, tomatoes, and basil. Set aside.

2. In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. Drizzle onto the pasta. Add as much or as little as you like. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
