Easy Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

I am a HUGE caprese salad lover!  It’s one of my ‘go-to’ recipes for myself, when I’m out and when I’m entertaining.  I love it, because it’s one of those recipes that’s quick and easy, but absolutely scrumptious.  And what’s better?  When I can find a recipe I can prep ahead, share with friends & relax and enjoy their visit.

This share, I used a simple spinach base, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and a seasoned chicken (recipe below).  I prepped everything so that I just had to skew it before serving & drizzled it with my summer favorite blueberry infused balsamic vinegar glaze.  I often add in fresh basil to the skewers and use just a plan balsamic glaze or dressing.
