Heirloom Caprese Salad with a Green Twist

At the table with good friends and family you do not become old

This is how I view this dish. Perfect for springtime, perfect for a gathering, and satisfying from top to bottom. Caprese salad has so readily become a world famous dish, for its simplistic combination of flavors and I most certainly will not miss out on it for my lack of desire to eat cheese. Therefore, I have taken the best of this dish and transformed into a decadent raw vegan dish, surely not to be rejected at the table with good friends and family.

Creamy olive oil, juicy heirloom tomato, hearty green burger, rich olives, slightly tart basil, crisp lemon, and a slight spiciness of pepper when combined with arugula. Add that to a wonderful group of friends and family, turn on some Parisian lounge music, light some candles and you have satisfied all senses. Create an ambience that does this meal justice 🙂

    Hi Lauren,

    Is there another way to dehydrate with out an actual dehydrator? Perhaps in the oven lower than 118? If so how long do you think?

      You can do that, I think that you can start with 4-5 hours. I haven’t made them this way yet so I think we will have to experiment. Let me know how it goes though!
