I’ve always been a big fan of caprese salad. Whats not to like? It has basil, tons of mozzarella cheese, and lots of savory olive oil. My only issue with it is that, generally, it’s pretty caloric. All that cheese and olive oil really adds up. I was recently craving caprese salad and decided that spiraling everything in it could make a smaller serving of it seem larger. I also hypothesized that adding in some cucumber would make it seem more substantial without adding too many extra calories. It turned out great, though I did find that spiralizing mozzarella cheese is pretty much impossible–it’s just too soft. Instead I cut it into small cubes.

One  thing to note about this salad is that it doesn’t keep well. Cucumbers are very watery, so the whole salad gets a bit mushy and watery if you leave it in the fridge for a few days. Make it when you want to eat it and you’ll have a fresh, light caprese salad that I’m sure you’ll love.
