Cucumbers and arugula are not part of the traditional Caprese, but they add a crisp crunch and peppery flavor to this light and fresh salad.

Ingredients

    • 5 ripe Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
    • 2 large yellow tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
    • 1¼ cups fresh mozzarella, diced into chunks (or fresh mini mozzarella balls)
    • 2 English cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped into chunks
    • 1 bunch fresh basil leaves, washed, dried and sliced into thin ribbons
    • 4 cups arugula
    • Balsamic vinaigrette, homemade or store-bought

Preparation

In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, mozzarella, cucumbers, basil and arugula. Drizzle with the balsamic vignette and toss.
