Discover the story
Nothing says summer like the beautiful flavor combination of fresh tomatoes and basil.

This one just tastes like summer! This is a great Deconstructed Caprese Salad to serve family-style and has a wow-factor when placed on the table.

The best part about this Deconstructed Caprese Salad is if you use store-bought pesto, you can literally enjoy this salad all year long! This recipe was inspired by a dish we tried at a shore restaurant on the east coast that uses burrata instead of mozzarella. Creative, colorful, tasty, and did we mention easy? This takes about 10 min to go from the kitchen to the table.
