Any Italian Dan-O’s fans here? Dan-O’s Seasoning has two recipes for you today with our Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette & Caprese Salad Recipe. We’ll show you a quick balsamic vinaigrette recipe that uses simple ingredients and Dan-O’s, as well as an easy Caprese salad. The two make a perfect pairing as a side or appetizer for a wine or Italian food night.
If you’re not familiar with Caprese salad, it’s a popular dish from the Italian island of Capri. These ingredients are similar to those of a Margherita pizza, which shows off the red, white, and green colors from the Italian flag. A Caprese salad is known as a heart-healthy dish due to its use of fresh, all-natural ingredients. And since we do things differently at Dan-O’s we’re using Dan-O’s Seasoning and a homemade vinaigrette to spice things up!
The Caprese salad recipe utilizes juicy cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese. When mixed with Dan-O’s Seasoning and the vinaigrette, this salad becomes a fresh and zesty dish that is great on fresh bread or can be eaten as-is. This is an easy side or appetizer for a summer gardener or someone that keeps fresh veggies and herbs on-hand.
So, if you’re ready for a fresh, heart-healthy Italian appetizer, pour a glass of wine or get your bread in the oven for the Dan-O’s Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette & Caprese Salad Recipe.
