Ingredients

  • 4 small avocados or 2 large avocados
  • 1 cup small tomatoes such as grape or cherry quartered
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chiffonade
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • 1 tablespoon basil infused oil optional
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, mozzarella and basil together. 
  • Cut avocados in half and remove the pit. Scoop out a bit of avocado flesh using a sharp spoon being careful not to mash the avocado. I used a round measuring tablespoon with thin edges.
  • Cut the scooped out avocado into similar size pieces and toss it gently with the tomatoes and cheese. Don't over mix. 
  • Spoon the stuffing into the avocado halves. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and top with crunchy salt such as Maldon or Cyprus Salt Flakes. 

How to Eat Caprese Stuffed Avocados

  • Enjoy as an appetizer by going in directly with a fork or scooping it out onto a plate and eat as a salad. Or make it a meal by serving this on a bed of baby greens and grilled chicken.
