Heirloom Caprese Salad with Crispy Prosciutto
Hello & Happy Summer. Today I am sharing a light & cool Summer salad recipe. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I don’t love a salad. I am just not a huge fan of certain lettuce- that’s why a caprese is one of my all time favorite salads!
I used Heirloom tomatoes for this one, but creole or another variety will work as well. I picked my Heirloom tomatoes up from Albertsons & grabbed a yellow & red one.
This recipe is a perfect lunch for 2 and would be great as an appetizer for more!
2 heirloom tomatoes
6 pieces of fresh mozzerella
3-4 pieces of prosciutto
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425F
Place prosciutto on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in oven while you prep your salad (check at 5 minutes, it will be ready once crispy)
Slice tomatoes & assemble with mozzarella on a plate
Pour Olive Oil & then Balsamic glaze in a circular motion around the plate on top of mozz & tomatoes
Sprinkle salad with crispy prosciutto pieces & freshly cut basil
Season with fresh cracked pepper & a pinch of salt to taste
I hope that you enjoyed this recipe. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for other delicious creations!
