Bacon Jam Caprese Salad

April 14, 2014

Oh, you thought the Caprese was healthy? It’s a salad made of cheese! Adding bacon jam isn't going to change that, but it will make it pop!

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 4 oz The Bacon Jams Red Chili & Garlic Spreadable Bacon
  • 2 large balls of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 8 whole pieces fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Slice the tomatoes into round, half-inch circles. Do the same with the mozzarella. Lay the tomato slices out on a serving dish and top each with one slice of fresh mozzarella. Drizzle the olive oil over each piece and then do the same with the balsamic. Dollop The Bacon Jams Red Chile & Garlic Spreadable Bacon evenly on each piece, then top each with a basil leaf and serve. Be a hero.
