Sometimes the best dishes are the most simple. That’s where we find Caprese Salad with Avocado. Summer in my house is filled with salads like this one. I eat them as the main course, as a side, as lunch or as dinner. It just tastes like summer to me!

This is really easy to make. Which to be honest is a complete summer food requirement for me – I don’t want to spend all the time in the kitchen I want to be outdoors hanging out and enjoying the great weather! I mean come on – no one wants to spend all Saturday in the kitchen cooking when you should be in the pool, at the beach, or anywhere…but we all still want a delicious meal right? Yes with Caprese Salad with Avocado you can have it all this summer!

If you would like to make the balsamic reduction to drizzle (it is optional — you could use regular non-reduced balsamic to make this dish even easier) be careful. If you reduce too much it becomes taffy … believe me I have done it. So really just do the 15-20 minutes of simmering and stirring and then let cool. Don’t high boil, and don’t let it go too long!
