Roasted Bell Pepper Caprese Salad

I love the combination of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.  I love the creamy texture and taste of fresh mozzarella.  I love the bright flavor of basil.  What don’t I like about a Caprese Salad?  Sliced tomatoes leaving their tomato slime all over my plate!  I do enjoy eating diced tomatoes in a pasta dish, or even on a taco as a pico de gallo.  I cannot, however, eat a sliced tomato – there is just too much slime involved.  And – I know when one has been accidentally placed on a sandwich I order and then removed! 

I decided to try a twist on this salad by replacing the tomatoes with roasted bell peppers.  This may not be for everyone, especially those tomato lovers, but I LOVED it!   The sweetness of the bell peppers was an excellent pairing with the fresh Mozzarella and basil. 

This post was originally from May of 2012, in August 2019, I decided to keep the post but update it a bit.  I have changed the recipe slightly and updated the photos.  

Give this twist a try – I’d love to hear what you think!
