Looking for a quick, easy, and tasty lunch or dinner? Craving Italian food? Well, this Easy Caprese Salad Remix is the salad for you! Full of protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants, this dish can help you beat the summer heat.

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a delicious recipe that a nutrition student at the University of Alabama shared with me. I thought it was so simple and delicious that you might enjoy for an easy summer dinner. I’m all about Caprese anything and everything and I love how Caroline added avocado to the salad for a dose of healthy fat as well as some grilled chicken for protein.

Here’s what Caroline has to say about the recipe…

“Hi! My name is Caroline Hughes and I am a nutrition student at the University of Alabama finishing up the Coordinated Program in Dietetics this upcoming spring. This summer I am so excited to be working with Holley! I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with all of you. I don’t know about you, but I’m always craving Italian food and looking for ways to make the culture’s classic dishes a little healthier. Here is my spin on the appetizer dish, Caprese Salad. I hope you all enjoy!”

Thanks, Caroline, for sharing your recipe with us!
