What is a Caprese Salad?

Caprese salad is a simple Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, seasoned with salt, and olive oil. It is usually arranged on a plate.

This Candy Cane Caprese Salad is layered in a candy cane shape using fresh mozzarella and vine ripe tomatoes, then garnished with toasty baguette slices and balsamic glaze! 

What ingredients do I need to make this Candy Cane Caprese Salad?

  • Tomatoes: I like to use large vine-ripened tomatoes.
  • Fresh Mozzarella: I use the 8 oz. mozzarella logs from Trader Joe’s and slice them into 8 (1 oz.) slices. 
  • Fresh Basil: Adds so much flavor and provides the some green garnish to the candy cane. 
  • Balsamic Glaze: I love the one from Trader Joe’s but you can find it at most grocery stores in the salad dressing aisle.
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Baguette slices, if desired. I like to use Trader Joe’s baguette.
