Chopped Caprese Salad #SundaySupper

Chopped Caprese Salad is super easy to make, and it's fresh, delicious taste makes it the perfect side dish for summer potlucks.


When summers warmth hits, potluck season begins. Family and friends gather together, each bringing a dish to share with everyone else in attendance, and enjoy each others company. So this week the #SundaySupper tastemakers are bringing their Summer’s Best Potluck Dishes to the table, to give you tried and true recipes you can take to your next potluck with pride. A big thank you goes out to our amazing host, T.R. Crumbley of Gluten Free Crumbley, who made this event happen!



This is my favorite salad in the summer. When I start picking vine ripe tomatoes from my garden, I grab some fresh basil as well, and make this salad often to enjoy for lunch. I honestly never get tired of it. It's a healthy meal that's light on the waist, as well as the stomach. Who wants to eat a heavy meal, when temps are in the 80's and 90's? I sure don't. If you crave something a little more substantial, add a hunk of Italian bread to soak up the juices from the salad, or for the carnivores, add a grilled burger or piece of chicken, and you have a complete meal, that still wont weigh you down, and leave you feeling sluggish.

Double, or even triple this recipe to take to your next potluck, and get ready for it to disappear quickly. Every time I take this dish to a potluck, I always bring an empty bowl home.

Whichever way you chose to enjoy it, at home for yourself or to share at a potluck, you'll love the ease and freshness of this Chopped Caprese Salad!
