Fall Inspired Caprese Salad

Fall is approaching but the weather may not be cooling off quite yet.

When asked to bring a simple side dish to any Summer gathering, I happily rely on two little words: Caprese salad. Those crisp sliced garden tomatoes, topped with mozzarella and fresh basil leaves equal a one-of-a-kind party pleaser. With four lovely ingredients that need no more than five minutes of prep– what could be more enjoyable?  I also happen to sneak a few bites in while I’m preparing my layered Caprese platter!

But Summer is coming to a close. Outdoor gatherings are still happening in the September months…so what to do?

We happily stumbled across this delicious recipe by “I Adore What I Love”- A Mom Blog, and really appreciated the additional ingredients including avocado, apple, and honey!  What a great way to transition our Summer favorite with some Fall flavors!

This original dish always gets devoured… and with this alternative twist, we are sure it will be a hit at your next gathering!

Pair with our dark green, olive green, red, or signature white dinner napkins!


  • 3 apples peeled and diced
  • 1 lb Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Log I buy the pre-sliced, and then slice them into cubes even more!
  • 3 avocados take the avocado out of the shell and cube it
  • 5 Roma Tomatoes cubed
  • 1 big bunch hand ripped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup honey


  • Add all ingredients, except honey, into a bowl and mix delicately.
  • Pour honey over the salad immediately before serving. Add more or less to taste.
  • Enjoy!!! Refrigerate the leftovers, if you have any! They will keep it for a day.
