Summer Blackberry Caprese Salad

Picnics, barbeques, lake weekends, graduation celebrations- summer parties are upon us!  Although getting together may look a little different this summer, virtual or at a distance, impressing your family and friends with a summer dish is still an option! I don’t know about you, but I seem to bring the same Greek pasta salad or Grandma’s potato salad to every single gathering.  It’s time to treat my friends and taste buds to a new, fresh flavor.

Start with a classic tomato, mozzarella, basil caprese salad, throw in creamy avocado and tart blackberries, and top everything off with a sprinkle of balsamic dressing.  This summer, caprese salad is the perfect combination of sweet and salty that you didn’t know you needed on a hot summer day.  It is light, refreshing, and dangerously tasty.  Not to mention, it is super simple, quick, and under 10 ingredients. All ingredients are approachable, high quality, and affordable thanks to Green Bean Delivery.
