Asparagus Caprese Salad

Sunday, February 28, 2016

From our skinny table to yours...

We LOVE Caprese Salad & it's safe to say we are fresh mozzarella addicts (in moderation, of course)!  We are sharing one of our favorite ways to enjoy this salad with a bonus veggie, asparagus!  Not to mention the asparagus adds quite a layer to the presentation & we love a pretty plate ;)


How gorgeous to serve up at a BBQ?  It will be Spring before we know it.. below freezing last week & this week we are up in the 60's!!!  No complaints here :)

How did we plate this beauty, you ask?  Simple.  We piled sautéed garlic asparagus onto a plate and topped with the typical caprese acoutraments and added in sun-dried tomatoes!  YUM :)


This pretty platter can easily be turned into a dinner too if you top with grilled chicken :) 

We hope you love this one as much as we do!
