Heart Caprese Salad

Everyone loves caprese salad, so what better way to serve it than in a heart shape?! A beautiful treat that’s not sweet. It comes together so quickly and so easily that you’ll want to shape your caprese salad into a heart every time you make it from now on.

All you need is…

  • fresh tomatoes, sliced thick (about 20 tomato slices)
  • fresh pre-sliced mozzarella log, cut into heart shapes with a heart-shaped cookie cutter (about 12 mozzarella hearts)
  • fresh basil
  • olive oil
  • balsamic glaze
  • flaky sea salt
  • toasted baguette

Start by forming the tomato slices into a heart shape on a board or platter. I used this 14″ walnut wood board. Top the tomatoes with the fresh mozzarella hearts. Place a leaf of fresh basil next to each mozzarella heart. Drizzle the heart shape with olive oil and balsamic glaze. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Serve with toasted baguette slices.
