Caprese Salad Stuffed Avocado

I had a ripe avocado to use up and I was craving a caprese salad so I decided to combine the two. I am so glad I did! This was seriously delicious and healthy too. I loved how beautiful it looks and loved the flavors and textures were terrific. I love that a quick and simple recipe can be so gourmet. I highly recommend you try this one!

Combine the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil together in a bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and a bit of balsamic vinegar and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Toss to mix well. Slice the avocado in half then remove the pit with a knife – click here for instructions. Spoon the caprese salad equally into the avocado halves. Drizzle with more balsamic vinegar right before serving. Enjoy.

    Hi Pam,
    I’m alsmost ashamed to admit I had to toss the last avocado in the compost pile last night. Oh how I wish I would have thought to prepare such a creative dish. Marion would have LOVED it! Well, I know for next time:) Thank you so much for sharing, Pam…(I did save the pit though to grow:)

    And I thought caprese couldn’t get any better as-is! What a wonderful, light snack or side dish. I love this, Pam!

    You can’t go wrong with avocado! Is there anything that avocado doesn’t make better? I feel like I can eat it with just about everything. Can’t wait to try this. We’re going to be planting our cherry tomato plants soon. This will be a great use for them : )

    You certainly did have a number one idea. Creamy avocados make everything better. I have been on an avocado kick because they have been showing up at the store in a ready to be eaten stage. Plus the look of it is color and elegant.

    I eat an avocado almost every day. They are so delicious and healthy! I usually just sprinkle the avocado with lime juice and a little sea salt, but now you have me craving this!
