Chopped Caprese Salad

A few weeks ago, for Easter, my brother and his family, and my hubby and our family all headed over to my parents house for Easter dinner. My mom made her most amazing marinated chicken, I made my potato salad and deviled eggs, and my sister in law brought this chopped caprese salad. One look at it and I knew, I had to have the recipe. It was incredibly flavorful and light tasting. The fresh, juicy tomatoes, cheese, and asparagus coated in balsamic vinegar was mouth watering! Even my oldest kiddo enjoyed it!!

This would be the perfect salad to bring to picnics, BBQ’s, potlucks, or to make when having company over. Not only is it simple to make, but it is a healthy dish that won’t leave you feeling “stuffed”.

Enjoy!

    Is the asparagus raw or cooked and just vinegar, salt and pepper? Sounds good and want to make this weekend. Thank you

    Also Italian seasoning added in there 🙂
    As for cooked or raw, we have had it both ways, raw is much more crunchy of course, but if you are okay with that, its quite yummy. If you prefer a more tender veggie, cook it and allow to cool before putting into the salad!! Enjoy!!
