Spring Caprese Salad with a Lemon Basil Dressing

Caprese Salad Recipe The Betty Stamp


Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows! La la la. This weather is like a happy drug and with great weather must come great food! This salad is all kinds of zingy, creamy and bursting with sunny flavour.

Perfect for a packed lunch or to throw together for a picnic with pals! (and fruity cider)

I've taken the conventional Caprese Salad and added a few extras to make it even tastier. Did you know it was given this name because it is the colours of the Italian flag? I didn't. Eating and learning :)

    1. Very true and me too -my eyes tend to act like binoculars but the wrong way round…if that makes any sense, like there never seems to be enough of it…wow. I'm sleepy and am making zero sense. x
