Healthy Avocado Caprese Salad (Dairy-Free)

If you’re trying to cut back on dairy and miss dishes like Caprese salad, then you’re going to love this Avocado Caprese recipe.

But, you don’t have to be dairy-free to enjoy this one. Everyone loves it.

This recipe is:

Healthy, Vegan, Dairy-Free,
Grain-Free, No-Bake,
Simple-to-Make & Delicious

Healthy avocado Caprese makes the perfect summer side dish or lunch—it’s quickly become one of my favorites to bring to a dinner party and enjoy at home, too.

Avocado Caprese Elizabeth Rider Blog

Look for ripe, in-season tomatoes as they’ll be sweeter in flavor and sweeter on your wallet, too.

I like this avocado Caprese salad as-is and don’t even miss the cheese on it, but if you tolerate dairy then go ahead and throw some high-quality mozzarella on top to make it more traditional.

The recipe below is written to serve two, but this dish is easily doubled and can be made for larger crowds. I plan for one large tomato, one small avocado, and one small watermelon radish per two people when using this as a side dish.

Healthy Avocado Caprese Salad Ingredient Notes

  • Tomatoes: Look for ripe, in-season tomatoes as they’ll be sweeter in flavor and sweeter on your wallet, too. I used a beautiful yellow heirloom tomato in the photos here.
  • Avocado: The measurements of all ingredients are flexible in this salad. For the avocado, one small avocado serves two people. One large avocado serves four.
  • Watermelon radish: Watermelon radish is a pretty green and pink type of radish. I love it here for the color and extra flavor. It has a mild radish flavor (doesn’t taste anything like watermelon)—it can be omitted if you can’t find one or prefer not to use it. I find the flavor of a regular radish too strong for this dish.
  • Balsamic: Look for aged balsamic vinegar as it will be thicker and sweeter (it’s better for drizzling). I used Napa Valley Naturals Grand Reserve Aged Balsamic Vinegar and found it for a good price on Thrive Market. I also use Thrive Market organic extra virgin olive oil.
  • Basil: Grow your own in a small pot on your patio if you can. A starter organic basil plant is usually less than $5 and can grow basil all summer long.

Healthy Avocado Caprese Salad (Dairy-Free)
 
Prep time:
Total time:
 
Yield: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small watermelon radish
  • 6-8 large basil leaves
  • balsamic vinegar (look for aged so it's thick)
  • extra virgin olive oil

  • freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Slice the tomato and arrange on a plate.
  2. Slice the avocado and add in between the tomatoes.
  3. Thinly slice the watermelon radish on a mandoline and arrange on the plate (the watermelon radish can be omitted if you prefer.)
  4. Thinly slice the basil leaves and sprinkle on top of the salad.
  5. Sprinkle a few pinches of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper over the ingredients.
  6. Drizzle with aged balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. The amounts are flexible, I used about three tablespoons of each in the photo here.
  7. Serve immediately.
Notes
- Servings of this recipe vary. I plan for one large tomato, one small avocado, and one small watermelon radish per person when using this as a side dish.
- Look for aged balsamic vinegar as it will be thicker and sweeter (it's better for drizzling).
- Watermelon radish is a pretty green and pink type of radish. It has a mild radish flavor and can be omitted if you can't find one or prefer not to use it. I find the flavor of a regular radish too strong for this dish.
