Zucchini Caprese Salad

Caprese salad is one of my favorites. I love the tomato, fresh Mozzarella and basil combination. This salad mixes it up a bit and adds some Italian seasoning and fresh zucchini. It started off with having a fresh zucchini and tomato, and ended up as something delicious!


1 medium zucchini, washed and chopped into 1 inch cubes
1 large tomato, cored and cut into roughly 1 inch pieces
1/2 pkg. Mozzarella pearls, cut in half
6 basil leaves, julienned (thinly sliced)
4 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs. Italian seasoning mix

Place the chopped zucchini, tomato, Mozzarella and basil into a medium size bowl. In a small bowl, combing the olive oil, balsamic and Italian seasoning and stir together until the seasoning gets mixed in. The olive oil and balsamic will still look separated, which is fine. Pour the vinaigrette into the salad and mix everything together. Easy peasy!
