This Caprese Pasta Salad recipe is made up of delicious mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil. We love the way our Basic Vinaigrette complements this refreshing summer side or main dish, but you can always customize the recipe if you prefer a milder taste. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Mix vinaigrette in a large bowl. Whisk in shallot, garlic, tomatoes and olives. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente, about 10 minutes, or as package label directs. Drain pasta and immediately add to bowl with tomato mixture. Toss gently.

Step 3

Add basil, mozzarella and Parmesan to bowl with pasta mixture and lightly toss again. Season salad with salt and pepper and serve right away, or cover and refrigerate to serve cold.

The balsamic vinaigrette really overwhelms this dish and doesn't mesh well. Otherwise it's a nice combination.
