A gorgeous Caprese salad with the addition of berries makes a lovely addition to your spring menu. This Mozzarella, Tomato and Strawberry Salad with its striking colors is as irresistible as it looks!

Mozzarella, Tomato and Strawberry Salad

Due to the wacky spring weather, our local strawberry season was barely a week long…so I made this salad when these tiny beauties were at their peak.  We were having company for dinner, so instead of slicing a fresh mozzarella ball, I purchased the smaller bocconcini….and made a composed salad versus plating individually.  I served this beautiful salad of berries, grape tomatoes, and mozzarella on a bed of baby spinach…and whipped up a simple vinaigrette with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. A dusting of fleur de sel, crushed pink peppercorns and shredded basil finished it off.
