Whether its a celebratory lunch for a crowd or just a quick bite for one, this avocado caprese wrap is fresh, light, and healthy, yet perfectly filling, and it only takes 5 minutes to make!
I’m guessing I’m like a lot of you round about this time of summer. Fresh flavors are being craved by my taste buds sending shockwaves of recipe ideas to my hot little head. But with the daydreams of swimsuits and pool time on this hot, dry days, lighter fare is always on my mind.
I don’t know if I will ever tire of the classic caprese. Salads, sandwiches, pastas. You could turn this thing into a taco or french toast and I’d eat it. Weak in the knees. It’s what I’ve become. Prepare to see more.
And now, this wrap. It tingles my palate.
I could eat one of these every day. In fact, I have. At least for 3 of the past 5. That’s fair odds in my book. And shows my sincere caprese dedication.
When Avocados from Mexico asked me to come up with a recipe to share with their readers, it really wasn’t much of a stretch for me to pull out my tomatoes and mozz and doctor it up with sweet balsamic and creamy avocados. You should think about it. Oh but why just think about it? Just go ahead and make it.

While I was linking up my recipe for today’s post I discovered their newly redesigned recipe section. It’s pretty cool, more Pinterest-style in its display, so finding recipes—several from more food bloggers—is visual and easy to scroll through. More avocado recipes to love…
While I usually do my round up of favorites each Friday, I’m taking a pass for this week because I have something even better to share with you for next week.
Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook, Twitter and the blog for the announcement of the next issue of FoodieCrush magazine set to go live next week, hot off the presses, er, on the web. Get ready to kick your feet up in an air conditioned room, pour yourself a cool glass of cucumber water and chill out to some great food blogger fodder, photography and recipes.
Until then, have a great weekend friends. Make it a safe one and cook something good.

This. Looks. Amazing.
You want to know my favorite part? I DON’T HAVE TO TURN ON THE OVEN! (or stove, or microwave). And you’re so right, something about the caprese-combo… like it was sent straight from heaven.
(I totally recognize that balsamic bottle, btw, I’ve got the same one in my pantry!)
Also, I totally just scrolled back up mid-sentence to stare lovingly at your photo.

Looks wonderful. I have beautiful tomatoes fresh from the garden to make these with too!

Caprese + avocado = genius! This makes such a great summer lunch!
Love the addition of avocado to this wrap, so good.
Jackie @ The Beeroness
When I frist started to cook I thought I invented caprese salad, feel free to judge me for that.
I adore that you added avocados, looks so delicious.
I could never judge you, since I think it was I who invented caprese. We’re just smart that way.
Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes
I’ve been eating avocados every day lately! This is a great idea for something different to try with them!
