Strawberry Caprese Pasta Salad

Fresh strawberries and basil are a pretty combination that tastes great in this variation of a traditional mozzarella and tomato salad. Traditional Caprese (salad from the island of Capri) is a simple dish from Italy’s Campania region.

8 oz shell pasta, cooked, rinsed, and cooled
8 oz DLM Fresh Mozzarella Balls, drained
1/4 cup slivered fresh basil
1/4 cup slivered red onion
1/4 cup prepared balsamic vinaigrette

Rinse, hull, and quarter strawberries. Combine strawberries, pasta, mozzarella, basil, and onion in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette and mix gently until ingredients are well coated.
