I used to love caprese salads. The creamy mozzarella, the flavorful tomato, the herbaceous basil; it was like the perfect bite for this Italian guy. But because I now know that mozzarella, like all acidic foods, takes a toll on my body and the earth, I no longer eat it.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy those same flavors the alkaline way!
I substituted creamy avocado for the mozzarella in this version that’s perfect as hors d’oeuvres or part of your dinner. You’re going to love this combination so much, you won’t miss the acidic version!
So give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
INGREDIENTS [Serves 2]
2 large tomatoes
1 Hass avocado
16 basil leaves
Extra virgin olive oil (drizzle to taste)
Dash of sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Ground pepper to taste
Optional: Add ground cumin to taste
Slice avocado into slices. Then cut off the ends of the tomatoes, and slice each tomato into four thick slices.
Then assemble tomato on serving plate and top with avocado slices (I usually add two avocado slices per tomato). Add 2 basil leaves to each tomato with avocado.
Drizzle with olive oil, a dash of sea salt and black pepper.
