This simple, tasty salad is another quick way to get your calcium while keeping oxalate intake low. I swapped out the traditional tomatoes used in Caprese salads for sweeter, lower-oxalate strawberries, and, for a little tang, we finish it off with a drizzle of balsamic dressing. Mozzarella is a good lower sodium, higher calcium cheese choice. Make sure to check the different brands as the nutrition content varies. I make this when asked to bring a side dish in summer.Print

Is it possible to add a few chunks of small grilled chicken?
Please feel free. I do sometimes too depending upon my meat protein goals for the day. Your kitchen, your rules. Enjoy!
