Avocado “Caprese” Salad

Redefining Caprese salad! Here’s a way to lighten up this classic I‪talian‬ salad. It’s a ‪dairy-free, ‪‎vegan‬ and ‪‎paleo‬ version but doesn’t miss out on the beautiful creamy and fragrant essence of this ‪salad‬.

Using avocados instead of the traditional mozzarella adds vitamin E, potassium and dietary fibre, not to mention a creamy, decadent texture. This substitution also greatly improves the quality of fat as the fat in avocados is mostly heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Avocado Caprese Salad

  • One ripe medium-sized avocado
  • 1-2 large tomatoes
  • Fresh basil leaves, torn
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar (or fresh lemon juice)
  • Sea salt to taste

Serves 2.

Layer slices of ripe avocado and tomatoes. Top with fresh basil, a good quality olive oil, your favourite acidic base (balsamic vinegar or lemon juice) and sea salt. Gorgeous!
