My husband and I make this at least once a week, sometimes more. It is the basic Caprese salad topped with some additional yummy ingredients.

Absolutely delish! I didn't have any fresh basil on hand, but with all the other flavors, I didn't miss it. My artichokes were the marinated variety, so that probably helped. It came together easily, but felt fancy. I would definitely serve this to guests. Read More

This was excellent! I loved all of the extras that went into this. The one flavor I didn't think went together was the green olive and basil. To me they clashed but my husband liked them together so there you have it. I love green olives but for me black would have worked better in this. You be the judge... Read More

I had this with some crusted chicken, and this was the favored part of the meal. Everything came together so well. I skipped the artichokes, though I love them; and I had accidentally finished my fresh basil in another recipe, so used dried. Also, would have loved balsamic vinegar, but had to substitute red wine vinegar. Even with the slight changes, this was a keeper - I plan to make it once per month. So attractive, too! Read More
