Asparagus Caprese Salad + My 4 Dress Options for Dinner En Blanc

Summer salads make me giddy.  This one is super easy and full of crazy good flavors.  I love fresh mozzarella on anything.  If you follow me on instastories you saw that I served this salad with a roast chicken and cauliflower rice for dinner last night.  I am basically obsessed with cauliflower rice these days- the kids not so much.   If you wanted a vegetarian meal you could skip the chicken or even serve this over quinoa and/or lettuce for a heartier salad. 
This is best served room temperature.

- 1 bunch asparagus
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- small mozzarella balls, halved
- 1/2 cup pesto
- fresh basil
- olive oil

Wash asparagus and trim ends off.  Spread on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast at 350 degrees 15 minutes.

In a bowl toss, tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto together.  I added a little olive to loosen up the pesto.  

Remove asparagus to platter and scoop the tomato mozzarella salad over the top.  Sprinkle with fresh basil. 

** I used store bought pesto but homemade is always so much better

I mentioned before that on Thursday I am attending the Dinner en Blanc here in Charleston.  I wanted to share the 4 dresses that I considered for the event.  I am pretty sure I have made up my mind and will share Thursday what I am wearing so follow along on instagram (@snoopnattynat) as I will be posting from the party:) 

Also for the next 2 days Baublebar is having a big sale and many Spring styles are on major sale.
