Description

This Caprese Salad with Microgreens is a twist on the traditional Italian Caprese Salad. I just love incorporating microgreens. And, with the addition of flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds, it makes this salad a healthier alternative.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups micro greens of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 12 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese (2 fresh mozzarella balls)
  • 23 large tomatoes
  • balsamic glaze for drizzling

Instructions

  1. Prepare the microgreens salad: In a medium mixing bowl mix together the microgreens, the seeds, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 
  2. Slice the Cheese and tomatoes: slice the mozzarella and tomatoes on a cutting board, into 10 round slices – approximately 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Arrange the ingredients: when ready to serve, arrange the cheese on a platter, place the tomato slices on top of each cheese slice and top with about 1 tablespoon of the microgreens salad. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.

Notes

  • You can use all or some of these seeds or also any or substitute the seeds with the following:
    Sesame seeds
    Sunflower seeds
    Pumpkin Seeds
    Pomegranate seeds
    Pine nuts
    Toasted, crushed walnuts
  • For a non-vegetarian version you may also like to top the salad with some bacon bits or chopped prosciutto.
