How to make Caprese Stuffed Tomatoes

If you are looking for an easy, delicious and super healthy option for a dinner, side dish or even an appetizer, this recipe is your perfect option!

Either if it’s a lazy Sunday, a get-together or any occasion you can never be wrong with Caprese. I love this type of salads because you don’t need to spend much time in the kitchen. It’s like my Pinto beans salad. In a few minutes, you have a delicious and healthy salad that you can have alone or as a side dish. I usually have them at dinner alone! Yummm.

What is exactly Caprese?

Caprese or Caprese Salad (in Italian Insalata Caprese) is a very famous and traditional Italian entrée or Antipasto. A Caprese salad is made from fresh tomato, buffalo mozzarella, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Doesn’t it sound delicious! Some places have variations, for example, some places add black olives like I’m doing in this recipe.

To make these delicious Caprese Stuffed Tomatoes you…

In a medium bowl mix all the ingredients and mix well. Set in the fridge for 20 or 30 minutes.
