A caprese salad of ripe tomatoes and mozzarella is my go to salad for a summer dinner. I make it right in our individual salad bowls. In fact I don’t have to make a dressing, just throw everything together. It is that simple. So when I had an abundance of radishes from my community vegetable basket, I decided to throw them in too. Since I was already changing the recipe, why not change the cheese, too. I did not have any mozzarella, but I did have feta in the cheese drawer of the fridge.

Yes, we have a draw in the refrigerator filled with delicious cheese. It is my entire family’s weakness. This salad is literally what I throw together at the last-minute. There is nothing like a good summer tomato, especially the heirlooms. They remind me of the New Jersey tomatoes of my childhood. Why did they have to ruin them?

In this recipe I used some small grape tomatoes.  Since my daughter likes to eat them as if they were candy, I always have some on hand. I wish I could take credit for that stroke of luck. However, I loved tomatoes as a kid too, maybe I passed down a love of tomatoes in the genes. Is there a tomato gene? Somehow I doubt it. When I was little, I would have a tomato sandwich with my grandfather. It was bread, mayonnaise, sliced tomatoes and pepper. Oh yum! It still makes me smile to think about how lusciously, delicious the sandwiches were.

While the tomatoes are the star of this easy salad, the radish provides a nice little bite and spice. My husband is the radish lover in the family. I am pretty sure my daughter picked them out of her bowl and gave them to him. It was better than her feeding them to the dog, who loves vegetables too. Try this salad for yourself and watch it become your go-to salad all summer long. There is no need to slave in the kitchen for a summer dinner. Turn on the grill and barbecue some chicken and spend all of five minutes putting this delectable salad together. That gives you time to open a glass of wine and enjoy.

  1. My son is the same way with grape tomatoes, he will eat an entire container of them in one sitting (and he's an adult now, and still does it). I love radishes so I can imagine how tasty this salad is. (Just a note, you have mozzarella cheese in the ingredient list, not feta)
  2. Adding radishes to a caprese salad is a fabulous idea. The addition of feta instead of mozzarella seems to be perfect to meld the flavors. I will be trying this salad soon.
  3. this salad looks fancy enough to serve to guests, but easy enough to make for a tuesday night meal at home. I love it and i just got radishes this week, so i think i should be venturing out and trying this one real soon!
