Hey, everyone! I am so excited to share one of my favorite new salads with you. This is the perfect salad to use at your upcoming Labor Day BBQ that is right around the corner. If you are like me, you are already starting to plan your parties and what you will make.
I love Caprese Salad and decided to put a little twist on it and make a Caprese Pasta Salad that was full of my favorite vegies, pasta, cheese and dressing. Not only is this salad delicious but it is simple to make! The perfect summer BBQ recipe option!
A typical Caprese Salad usually has tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and a balsamic vinaigrette. I altered this salad by adding in some red onions and pasta to the mix. This has become one of my easy recipes that I make for family and friends on a regular basis. I hope you enjoy!
How to Make Caprese Pasta Salad
- 2 Cups of Cooked Pasta
- 1 Cup of Cherry Tomatoes Rinsed and Halved
- 1/2 Cup of Red Onion Diced
- 1 Cup Mozzarella Cubed
- Fresh Basil Chopped
- 1/4 Cup Trader Joes Balsamic Glaze
Mix all Ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate until serving.
This is not only an easy salad to make for Labor Day or any other summer BBQ event that you have going on but it is also incredibly delicious! If you love Caprese Salad, you will love this twist on it!
So many of us have Labor Day parties each year and I am always looking for a new and unique recipe option to take or serve for friends. This salad is a great option!
Do you have parties for Labor Day? What are you serving this year? I would love to hear and find some new recipe ideas to try!
