Better than Boring 

Salads can be boring; chicken can be boring. Together if done right they can be AWESOME! Caprese salad is one of my favorites. I’m not a huge fan of tomatoes but mixed with some spice and some mozzarella cheese. What’s not to love? So I started this special dish with some tomatoes. 

  
Next I cubed up some mozzarella!

   
 Already looking yummy! Next I took some chicken thighs that I baked a few days before. I will share that super simple yummy recipe with you soon! But if you want to duplicate take your favorite leftover chicken or a sliced up rotisserie. 

  
I added the chicken to the cheese and tomatoes. Totally forgot to take a pic sorry! Then I put it in the microwave for two minutes. And this awesomeness came out! 

  
Oh my creamy cheese! Mozzarella is my favorite favorite cheese and it always will be! 

I added this incredible smelling mixture to some regular salad. No dressing yet! What dressing should I use to compliment these flavors? Well balsamic vinagrette of course! Except instead of regular olive oil I used Tuscan herb infused olive oil. And let me tell you when you forgot the fresh basil for your caprese salad at home. This definitely makes up for the mixing herb. And as you will see below photographing oil is hard and it doesn’t look pretty but well that’s what vinagrette is, so it’s honesty if not beauty! Lol! 

  
For a final healthy addition I added a side of fruit. So yummy and fairly healthy probably more cheese then I should have but I’ll admit I’m slightly addicted and don’t feel bad about that! 

  
Until next time familia,

One thought on “Better than Boring 

  1. Yum!!! I think I may be the only Italian that isn’t crazy about plain tomatoes! But! Caprese is the exception! Okay that and bruschetta. I could eat just tomatoes and mozzerella and basil with balsamic vinegarette any day of the week! Salad or no!
