Caprese Salad

This is a classic, mouthwatering option for an appetizer or side dish. The tangy balsamic vinegar magnifies the subtle sweetness of the pear, juiciness of the tomato, and creaminess of the mozzarella.


  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 Asian pear optional
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil


  1. Thinly slice the mozzarella, tomatoes, and Asian pear (approximately 1/4 inch each).
  2. Starting from the bottom up, layer the mozzarella, Asian pear, tomato and basil.
  3. Drizzle with vinegar and oil. Serve chilled.
