Caprese pasta salad made with Chosen Foods Avocado Oil and Mayo

Caprese Pasta Salad

For a bright and flavorful addition to your next family picnic, prep a bowl of this Caprese Pasta Salad. Choose your favorite bite-sized gluten-free pasta (we love a good quinoa pasta!) and cool it down before tossing with a creamy balsamic dressing made with our Avocado Oil Mayonnaise. Fresh cherry tomatoes, baby mozzarella balls, basil, and pine nuts add tons of flavor to each and every bite.

Servings: 6


  • 8 oz gluten-free pasta bite-sized shapes work best
  • 2 tbsp Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Mayo
  • ¼ cup Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 8 oz fresh bocconcini or ciliegini mozzarella balls drained
  • ¼ c. chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ c. toasted pine nuts


  1. Cook your pasta according to the package instructions in boiling salted water. Once cooked, rinse under cold water until no longer warm.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix the mayo, avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls, basil and pine nuts. Stir well. 

  3. Add the cooled pasta and toss together. Allow the pasta salad to rest for 30 minutes before serving for best results.
