We toyed with the name of this salad for a long time at the studio when we were shooting - should we call it a Fattoush Caprese. A Fattese. A caproush? I mean, the possibilities were comical but the bottom line is, this is freaking delicious and it doesn't matter what I call it because everything should make it immediately.

It's a combo of 2 of my favorites, the Fattoush which is a Lebanese bread salad and a Caprese which we all know and love. When you put everything together, you'll never look back. The acidity from the dressing paired with the creamy mozzarella is perfection. The fresh herbs on top give it this extra pop that you'll obsess over. The grilled bread on the side is exactly what you want to sop up any leftover dressing or pile high with a scoop of tomatoes. I mean, it's just the freaking best.

It's also the perfect thing to make this time of year because we have to take advantage of tomato season for as long as humanly possible!! Get after it!

  1. 5 stars
    Loved this recipe!! Went to my local Farmers Market for ingredients. Exchanged dill (not my favorite herb) for fresh basil! Used a hearty sourdough bread! Excellent!!

  2. I plan on making this for a dinner party for 16 people. Would you suggest doubling or tripling the recipe? I know this will be a crowd pleaser and want to be certain I have enough. Thanks!
