March is National Nutrition Month! This year's theme is Eat Right with Color: http://www.eatright.org/nnm/.
In honor of the month, we've amped up the color spectrum on a typically tri-colored classic: caprese salad. Still infused with its lovely basil/mozz/tomato flavor combo, this new take on the traditional favorite is packed with even more antioxidants and those flu-fighting vitamins.
Fruity Caprese Salad
1/2 tangerine, peeled with segments sliced in half
2 basil olive oil infused mozzarella balls (from the Ratty's caprese salad)
3-4 cherry tomatoes (from caprese salad)
3-4 sliced peaches (salad bar)
2-3 roasted beets, sliced thinly
Toss everything together and enjoy! If there happens to be basil infused olive oil at the salad bar, feel free to drizzle it over the salad.
