  1. Healthy Recipe- Strawberry Caprese Salad

    Here’s a company-worthy dish that’s healthy, delicious, and makes a stunning presentation anywhere you serve it. Best of all, it requires no cooking and takes only minutes to throw together. It’s a variation on Caprese, the ubiquitous Italian salad of fresh mozzarella, sun-ripened tomatoes, and fresh basil. Here, strawberries are the star, complemented by sweet cherry tomatoes that are available year-round. Use the most flavorful, highest quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar you can get your hands on for maximum effect. It’s adapted from a recipe in “The Forest Feast.”

    Serves 4-6. – Susan Puckett


    • 16 ounces fresh strawberries, trimmed and quartered
    • 1 cup halved yellow or multi-colored cherry tomatoes
    • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn in pieces
    • 1 cup torn basil leaves
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • Freshly cracked pepper
    • Flaky salt


    1. Scatter the quartered strawberries, halved tomatoes, and mozzarella pieces on a platter.
    2. Distribute the basil leaves over the top. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.
    3. Season with a few grindings of black pepper and a sprinkle of flaky salt.
