This post is sponsored by Primal Kitchen. All opinions are my own.
Caprese salad is a classic. It's ALWAYS a crowd pleaser! BUT I wanted to step it up a notch. This version is made with tomatoes, mozzarella, fresh basil and white beans (I used cannellini) for additional protein and fiber.
Also, you can't forget the homemade avocado oil dressing! To make the dressing, I used Primal Kitchen's California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil and Primal Kitchen's Organic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Purchase at www.primalkitchen.com. Use code "frozenbananas" at checkout for a discount!

How to Make Salad Dressing with Avocado Oil
