Pan-Roasted Winter Caprese Salad

A simple recipe for a winter Caprese, a flavorful salad with roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and sprigs of thyme. A perfect side or appetizer to share!


  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves , smashed
  • 4-6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • flaky sea salt
  • 4-6 ounces fresh mozzarella (about 1 ball), at room temperature
  • balsamic vinegar or glaze


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange tomatoes, garlic, and thyme on a small, rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Roast for 25-30 minutes, just until tomatoes are blistered and starting to burst.
  • After removing the tomatoes, tear the mozzarella into large, rough pieces, and arrange on a plate. Spoon the tomato mixture over and around the mozzarella. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and sprinkle with a bit more sea salt, if desired. Dig in!
