Cucumber Caprese Salad

Hey everybody

So I am trying out a new recipe that I wanted to share with you guys! It’s called a cucumber avocado caprese salad and I got it off of pinterest! (Check out my Pinterest page here) I alter the recipe a bit because I don’t like avocados so I didn’t add them. But this is still a great recipe with or without them.

So now on to the recipe! I started with 2 large seeded cucumber, one pint of cheery or grape tomatoes, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, EVOO, One cup (8 oz) of fresh mozzarella cheese, 1 teaspoon(tbs) of garlic power and salt and paper!

I just picked a hand grab of leaves from the top of the basil plant. I washed off the cucumbers and with a very sharp slicing knife I cut them its 1/2 inch thick and then cut each slice into four pieces. I then added both the basil and cucumber into a large container.

I’m trying a lot of new and healthier recipes. I will make sure to share it with you guys! Here’s a picture of the finished product! Also if you want to add avocados the recipe calls for 2 avocados! 🙂
