This Avocado Caprese Salad might just be my new go-to lunch recipe. It is super yummy! Plus it packs in a ton of healthy fats and veggies. You can serve this salad as a main course by itself or as a side dish (as I did here, pairing it with my Baked Lemon Chicken & Asparagus). It’s totally up to you!
The dressing used on this salad is a basic balsamic vinaigrette recipe that I make at home all of the time! It is super simple, I almost always have the ingredients on hand, and it takes about .2 seconds to make. Just my style.
Please note: this salad does not use basil nor does it use a balsamic reduction so it is technically not really a true Caprese salad. Because I like to keep my recipes simple and made with ingredients that we can easily find or already have on hand, I decided to create this version instead. If you’d like, you can certainly tear up a 1/4 cup of fresh basil and incorporate it with the other mixed greens to get that same flavor & feel – but I promise, you won’t be disappointed at all with this one.
