What makes Caprese Brushetta?

Diced strawberries, whole blueberries, basil, and mozzarella makes this fruit red, white and blue appetizer.  Drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and served on toasted crusty bread slices.  It’s pretty and has a sweet and savory flavor.

Fresh strawberries and blueberries make a pretty blend, but any mix of fresh berries  would make a great caprese mix.  Adding fresh basil and small mozzarella makes the recipe quick to mix up.

How to make the Dressing?

I used Fig Balsamic vinegar in this recipe but if you don’t want the berries to be dark, use a light or white balsamic vinegar.  

Adding a tiny bit of brown sugar or honey sweetens and balances the fig balsamic. Of course a mild olive oil brings all the flavors together.  Use a whisk to blend it all together.
