hi.

I'm Leila. I love to make food. My recipes are fresh & simple but only because I'm lazy.

 

Avo-Caprese Salad with White Balsamic

Avo-Caprese Salad with White Balsamic

At my house avocado is a food group of it's own... 

The FDA hasn't said it, but I think we all agree it's a staple.  That's why I added it to this tossed caprese, to remind you to get your daily recommended allowance (RDA). I made a bite-sized caprese salad the other day and it was sooo good I HAD to think up another one.

This one features avocado, mozzarella pearls, tomato and basil tossed in white balsamic vinegar and oil. So simple, so summery!! Make it when you cook out, make it for a party, make it for your lunch. I don't care— just make it!
