  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups baby bocconcini cheese
  • 1 cup strawberries thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons protein packed nut-free basil pesto see recipe linked in description (or store bought)
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar


  1. Take your serving plate and pour in the Balsamic vinegar.
  2. Alternate a slice of strawberry with a bocconcini cheese all around the plate in circles, lines or however pattern you like.
  3. In a small bowl mix the pesto (try my recipe for nut-free pesto) with the white balsamic vinegar until smooth and runny.

  4. Drizzle the pesto dressing all over the strawberries and bocconcini and serve.
  5. Alternatively, you may secure a slice or whole strawberry on a toothpick, a basil leaf and a piece of bocconcini and drizzle with the same dressing.

Recipe Notes

  • I’ve had success making this Strawberry Caprese Salad using whole strawberries and stacking each strawberry with a ball of cheese on a toothpick. It makes for the perfect finger food.
  • I love pairing this Strawberry Caprese Salad with some oven-warm cheesy garlic bread.
  • This Strawberry Caprese Salad tastes best with a homemade basil pesto. I always have a jar of my protein packed nut free hemp basil pesto in the fridge and recommend you to try it! This easy green pesto comes together in just minutes and is super versatile.
