Caprese & Avocado Frittata

caprese and avocado frittata

A frittata made with the classic Italian salad ingredients of tomato, avocado, mozzarella and basil.  All the ingredients of a salad but in a frittata! A great dish for brunch, lunch or dinner.  Or even breakfast should the mood take you!

Caprese frittata with avocado

 

I had all the ingredients for a classic Italian tri-colour salad in the fridge but had a lunch time hankering for a frittata.  I have previously admired an avocado frittata recipe and thought why not throw the other ingredients into a pan too. It is bright and colourful with the taste lifted by the basil leaves. The mozzarella cheese gives a delightful softness to the frittata too.  Perfect served with a leafy salad on a summer’s day!
