Who doesn’t love a freshly made Caprese salad? This yummy Italian favorite is the best we’ve ever tasted and it keeps you energized all day long without the taxing and tiring components of using dairy mozzarella… It’s cruelty and concern free – but still loaded with flavor!
For the salad
- 2 large handfuls fresh organic basil
- 1 dry pint organic grape tomatoes
- 2-3 tablespoons organic balsamic vinegar
For the “Creamy Mozz Cheeze”
- 2 cups macadamia nuts
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1 chunk of onion
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- water to blend
- Blend “cheeze” components in a Vita Mix (or other high speed) blender until creamy adding enough water until thick. Place basil leaves on a plate and spoon in about 1 tsp of the “cheeze” onto each leaf, top with a cherry tomato and a quick spritz of balsamic vinegar and you’ve got a tasty guilt-free snack or salad!
