Nectarine Avocado Caprese Stack

Nectarine Avocado Caprese Stack

Summerfy your Caprese salad using nectarines and avocado. Delish!

What if I told you that you could summerfy a simple, favorite dish.

We’ve taken the traditional and tasty Caprese Salad and added our own fruity, California twist.  We included fresh, sweet nectarines and plump, California avocados and nestled them between fluffy layers of fresh mozzarella and basil.  Then we topped it all off with a velvety balsamic reduction and crunchy pistachios…

The end result is something you will want to make every day this summer….

That’s some serious summer goodness right there!

And not only is this dish light and refreshing, it’s a snap to construct!  It makes the perfect take-along dish to bring to summer parties and family outings.  I served mine on a marble board and I noticed it kept the food extra cold for a long period of time.  But, feel free to use a wood cheese board or even a nice round platter to create a circular pattern.  Pretty!
