Feeling fresh out of summer appetizer ideas? Then it’s probably time we remind you of a never-fail, tried-and-true favorite: the irresistible, cool and classic combo of tomatoes and mozzarella. Oh yeah, a Caprese salad is the ultimate summer app, whether you serve it on skewers, on crostinis, or simply on a platter.

And here to help you rediscover the refreshing summer salad is a Costco kit customers are finding hard to refuse. While a Caprese salad isn’t necessarily difficult to prepare on your own, Costco’s ready-made medley makes it easier than ever, providing all of the components in one package. So, go ahead and add this seasonal find to your July shopping list.

Caprese Salad Kits Are Back at Costco

The popular Caprese salad kit is back on shelves for the summer, and customers can’t wait to start serving it again. The 22-ounce prepared dish from Formaggio has everything you need for an easy aperitivo hour app—imported roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, and marinated mozzarella balls.

“This was a great appetizer, flavor was amazing, and very convenient!” shared one Instagram user. “This is my go toooooooo! It’s so d*mn good!” raved another. “Of course Costco now has my fixation food in bulk,” one shopper joked. 

When we see this salad kit, we picture it as the perfect starter to snack over a bottle of chilled white wine. But, that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t serve it as a side salad alongside a grilled chicken breast or plate of pesto pasta instead.

If you feel like dressing it up, it’s easy to do. Just spread out the tomatoes and mozzarella on a platter, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and balsamic glaze, and it’ll look as good as any restaurant appetizer. Whether you’re hosting a backyard BBQ, pool party, or casual get-together, this vibrant summer dish will add easy elegance to any table. 

The ready-to-serve starter is available in the warehouse store's deli section for $12.99. So, whether you prefer your Italian salad al fresco or straight out of the Costco fridge, there’s no doubt a Caprese salad is the app your summer entertaining has been missing.
