Caprese Salad Recipe

I love entertaining, especially when the recipes are easy and elegant.  This is my go-to summer salad, mainly because it's extremely simple and it allows me to embrace all of summer's glorious bounty...fresh tomatoes and basil.  Yum!  


  • 1 pint of red grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 pint of yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 large container of small mozzarella balls, sliced in half
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Cherchies Perfect Pesto Recipe
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


Slice tomatoes and mozarella cheese in half and put into a large bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add Cherchies Perfect Pesto and olive oil to bowl.  Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour, to allow flavors to intensify.  Serve cold or at room temperature.  Enjoy!
