Recipe For Cucumber Caprese Salad

Ingredients

2 cucumbers
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes (about 30)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 cup fresh mozzarella (I like to use the little balls)
1 avocado
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Wash the cucumbers and dry them off. Cut into 1/4-inch slices, then cut those in quarters so you're left with triangular-shaped cucumber pieces.
  2. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Cut them in quarters.
  3. Dice the avocado.
  4. Place the cukes, tomatoes, avocado, basil, and mozzarella in a bowl. Pour on the oil, vinegar, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Tastes best if served immediately.

Serves four.
