Southside Caprese Summer Sausage Salad

Southside Caprese Summer Sausage Salad

We’ve combined our Original Summer Sausage with a zesty mix of fresh veggies and herbs for this Southside take on Caprese salad. A traditional Italian-style appetizer, the addition of our Original Summer Sausage makes this a “must serve” before your next meal.

6-8 Small Servings

Time Needed:
Prep: 20 minutes
Resting time: 12-24 hours (optional)

  • 1 lb. Southside Original Summer Sausage – remove casing and dice into cubes
  • 8 oz. fresh perlini mozzarella
  • 8 oz. red & yellow grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ cup creamy Italian salad dressing
  • fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste

In a large bowl, mix Original Summer Sausage, mozzarella and tomatoes. Add creamy Italian dressing and ½ of the basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

Refrigerate until serving. Mix in remaining basil just prior to serving.

Can be made 12 – 24 hours in advance. Refrigerating overnight allows the dressing to marinate the salad.
