Fast and Delicious Caprese Salad Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson |

Let’s face it, you’re busy. You’re constantly on the go. You don’t have time to prepare healthy meals for you and your family. I get it. I really do, ’cause guess what? I’m busy too

In my practice, the most common challenge people face is TIME. There’s just not enough of it! I completely and whole heartedly understand.  I myself have an insane schedule. I have a busy Nutrition Practice, help out 5 days a week at a Pilates studio, manage all aspects of my websitethis blogFacebook Fan PageTwitter PageTumblr account, hundreds of emails, manage all of my own PR and marketing, and there is always so much more that needs to be done… I am a busy, busy girl! So when I say I can relate, it’s because I can!

Just look at this beautiful thing! It was delicious. Really, really, really delicious.  The only thing better than the taste was that it took all of 10 mins to put together… and when you make it you won’t have wait to snap pictures like I did so you’ll get to enjoy even faster!

Simply cut the tomatoes into wedges or slices, top with torn basil leaves, mozzarella, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, a sprinkle of coarse sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.

That's it. Like I said, 10 minutes. Now that's what I call Fast Food!
