If you follow along weekly with Seasonal Sundays- 2 weeks ago you may have seen my Heirloom Caprese Salad with Pear Balsamic. I really can't get enough Caprese Salad this time of year- so this week I thought I would pass along another fun variation that I came up with.

Strawberry Caprese Salad with Peach Balsamic

Ingredients:

Mozzarella Cheese (or Vegan Mozzarella -which I have used here)
Sliced Strawberries
Basil Leaves
a tiny pinch of Salt
Peach Balsamic (or try drizzling on Chocolate Sauce!)

Layer in any order- serve as an appetizer or dessert.

Its your turn to share your spring inspiration.

The Guidelines:

  1. Recipes must contain one Seasonal Ingredient (See below for the list of foods that are currently in season)
  2. You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
  3. Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.

    Hey Brittany, thanks for sharing the vichyssoise. This week I linked up a braised celery recipe. I figured I'd get it out there before it gets too hot for a braise.

    Silly me, I forgot to add that your caprese salad looks fantastic. Raw tomatoes are pretty much the only vegetable I won't eat. I love the idea of substituting strawberries. Strawberries, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella sound great together.

    This looks incredible! Did you just purchase a peach balsamic or do you have a recipe for it? I looked but my pregnant brain could have missed it. Thank you for such a fabulous resource!!!
