Quick & Tasty Caprese Salad

Behold! The simplest and most delicious salad. Caprese salads are my favorite. I made this in 2 minutes.

It looks small but I find it filling. Plus, I normally snack at about 2:30, so this carries me well into my snack time.

When making this for friends, I normally would layer the fresh mozzarella slices on top of tomato slices, but I was hungry. No fancy presentation needed. 

If you’ve never had this before, I encourage you to try it. Now normally I would use balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I went with apple cider vinegar this time because balsamic is slightly higher in carbs.

Caprese Salad – Serves 1
Carb Count: 6g

1 Roma Tomato, cut into large chunks
4 ounces Fresh Mozzarella, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1-2 Tsp of Cider Vinegar Dressing

Place tomatoes and mozzarella into a bowl. Add dressing and toss. Sprinkle fresh basil on top.
