Classic Caprese Salad

Grab a ball of fresh mozzarella, a handful of basil, and the best tomatoes you can find, and make this Caprese salad recipe before summer slips away!

I’ve posted a few Caprese salad recipes over the years. If you look through the recipe index, you’ll find one with strawberries, one with plums, one with a drizzle of mint pesto, and even cute little Caprese skewers with peaches! What you won’t find, though, is this: a classic Caprese salad with soft, creamy fresh mozzarella, juicy seasonal tomatoes, and a generous amount of basil leaves.¬†It’s a salad that’s been near and dear to my heart ever since we visited the island of Capri, years ago, just after Jack proposed. It was a magical trip where we ate Caprese salads…

Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Make these stuffed zucchini boats for an easy summer dinner! Lemon, thyme & Parmesan make the simple, delicious filling zesty, fresh & bright.

I first made these a few weeks ago for my family and even my little 2-year old nephew, who is going through a no-zucchini phase, gobbled his up. These easy stuffed zucchini boats are a simple, fresh, and…

Strawberry Salad with Avocado

My sweeter take on a classic caprese salad, this strawberry salad recipe is bursting with flavor from cherry tomatoes, basil & tangy balsamic.

If there’s one recipe that I suggest you make while strawberries are in season, it’s this one! This is not only my favorite strawberry salad, but it’s one of my favorite salads of all time (and I really like salads). It’s especially great for summer entertaining because it’s SUCH a crowd pleaser. The recipe comes from our first cookbook, and it’s gotten rave reviews, time and time again. The best part is that it has minimal ingredients and it’s super quick to put together. What’s in this strawberry salad? This is my extra-special take on a Caprese salad.¬†Tomatoes and basil…
