Avocado obsessed? Love caprese salad or strawberries? Well, have I got the recipe for you! Strawberry Caprese Salad Stuffed Avocados are about to blow your mind (and your tastebuds). This dish transforms everyone’s favorite creamy green fruit into a vibrant, flavor-packed masterpiece. It’s a healthy, easy summer salad idea that you can’t help but love.


At first glance, you might be skeptical of the strawberry avocado combo. I sure was, but a friend served it to me, and let me assure you, it works…and it works amazingly well. The avocado provides that luxurious, velvety base to offset the juicy pops of sweet strawberry. It’s like Caprese salad, but way better! The tangy strawberries are so much more flavorful than tomato, and the avocado adds an incredible texture to every bite. These stuffed avocado boats are also loaded with fresh mozzarella pearls for an extra touch of indulgence. Those little bursts of creaminess from the mozzarella complement the avocado and strawberries beautifully. Fresh basil lends its slightly peppery, distinctive flavor that ties all the other ingredients together in perfect harmony. Then, the tangy white balsamic vinegar adds the perfect punch of acid and balances out all that creaminess. One bite and your tastebuds will be utterly delighted by the perfect medley of rich, sweet, acidic, and herbal notes.

Instructions for Making Caprese Stuffed Avocados:

Step 1:

Make the vinaigrette by whisking together the white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and black pepper in a medium bowl. If you don’t have white balsamic, you can use regular, but the color of the viniagrette will be darker. I recommend finding a good white balsamic vinegar and keeping it on hand for other salad dressing recipes -it’s fabulous!
