Mozzarella and Fresh Fruit Salad - University of Colorado

Chef Gerald Prete says this play on a caprese salad is the university’s most popular salad. “It is easy to make and is very refreshing,” Prete says. “This salad is very bright to the eye and draws customers in immediately.” The salad features a raspberry balsamic vinegar dressing and fresh mint. Field greens and baby spinach play host to grapefruit, oranges and strawberries. Prete says any local, ripe fruit can be substituted in place of the strawberries. He suggests watermelon when it’s in season.
