RE Friday Round-Up: Caprese Salad Served Many Ways

Caprese Salad is summer, to me.

Warm tomatoes fresh from the garden.

Trying to notice something new every day. The beautiful colors, shapes, the design of a tomato.

Noticing what food tastes like.

The fresh smells of the herb bed and an abundance of basil.

The sound of a gurgling bottle of balsamic, drizzled over a beautiful platter of Caprese Salad.

And then … hearing the sounds of your guests as they rave over the garden freshness.

Yes, summer is Caprese Salad.

What is your favorite way to serve Caprese Salad?


  1. I’ve never made Caprese Salad before but I was basically drooling when I saw the Caprese Burger. YUM!!!

  2. Any way it is served is my favorite way, LOL! I really do like Caprese Salad and like you, it is a favorite summer dish.


  3. I am actually am tomorrow night! I’m hosting a dinner party (of course a post will come from it) and the appie is the mini caprese skewers.


  4. I adore caprese salad! You’re right: summer in a bite! Our basil is just now recovering from a pretty severe cutting I did for a recipe…now for the tomatoes to hurry it up in our garden…you’ve got my mouth watering :-). Here’s my version:

  5. I love it with roasted tomatoes, aged balsamic, fruity olive oil, cracked pepper and homemade mozzarella from our favorite Italian deli. Just may be making this this weekend.
    Have a great one!

  6. Now I know what to do with all my tomatoes =)

  7. Yum!! Sandy all those look sooo delicious! I love caprese salad, it is one of my favorite dishes with basil…..

  8. Yummy. I love Caprese pasta salad. Happy Friday!

  9. All of these look great. I just posted a Caprese combination this morning. I think the skewers might be one of our favorites now. I love the burger idea!

  10. My mouth is literally watering. Caprese salad is one of my most favorite combinations of ingredients. I loved seeing all the unique twists on it!

  11. There is just something so soul satisfying, about a warm, fresh from the vine tomato. Kinda like fresh baked bread and bean soup on a cold winter evening.
    Your caprese salad looks and sounds yummy.
    Now…..if I could keep my hands OFF the tomatoes long enough for more than one to ripen at a time. I’m a sucker for green fried tomatoes.

  12. Thank you for the nice mention for my Caprese bites! These are always a HUGE hit at any party and folks can’t stop eating just a couple. Love your blog! Have a great weekend.

  16. I just had caldera last night…absolutely one of the yunmiest things. My standard way is everything chopped into little pieces and thrown together (with chery tomatoes) but that sandwich looks amazing.

  17. Ever since going to Italy in the summer of 2007, I have fallen in love with Caprese Salad. I LOVE all the ways you serve it up in these suggestions!! My favorite is the one on the toothpicks. I def will have to try that one! I tend to get recipe-bound, but I am trying to grow in the area of thinking outside the box, and getting creative in my cooking. Thanks for this website.

  18. I’ve never made or had anything caprese which is funny because I love all the ingredients.

  19. You made hungry, I’m drooling over the images :)

  22. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
    with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very
    good results. If you know of any please share.
