Caprese Salad Thermomix Recipe
Chicken Caprese Salad

Sharing is caring!

Caprese salad is a quintessential Italian dish, featuring the vibrant red, green and white of the Italian flag and usually served very simple. I believe I have taken the traditional Caprese salad to the next level by making it a complete meal. This will absolutely impress guests and the best part – all of the elements can be prepared ahead of time in the Thermomix. A big thank you to Cafe Delights for the beautiful photography inspiration. Love Nik xx

  • Coat chicken well using 1 Tbsp of the dressing. Set rest of dressing aside in the fridge. Marinate chicken for a recommended 8 hours in the fridge. You can skip this step if you want to cook it right away, but marinating gives a better depth of flavour.
