Patriotic Caprese Salad


This 4th of July, celebrate with this stunning but easy-to-make take on the classic Italian caprese salad! 


  • 2-3 cartons grape or cherry tomatoes, washed (about 85 pc.) 

  • 2-3 cartons mozzarella pearls (about 65 pc.) 

  • Fresh blueberries 

  • Fresh basil 

  • Balsamic vinegar (optional) 


  1. Wash and cut the stem ends off about 85 cherry or grape tomatoes; arrange in rows on a large white rectangular platter to form the red stripes of the American flag. 

  2. Alternate these with rows of mozzarella pearls to form the white stripes. 

  3. Place a rectangular mound of blueberries in the upper left corner. Top with miniature stars (use a ½” star cutter on rolled cream cheese or sliced mozzarella pearls). 

  4. Serve with fresh basil and balsamic vinegar on the side.
