Caprese Salad: Tomatoes, Basil and Mozzarella

Diana Chan November 6, 2014 Italian, Recipes

The Caprese Salad hails from Italy and resembles the 3 colours of the Italian flag – green, white and red. There is one salad that I can never get sick of and it’s the Caprese Salad. It’s very simple to make and it’s beautiful when its created.

All you need to do is have alternating slices of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Once it’s assembled, drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. Then sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper.

Voila, it’s all done. I put all the basil in the centre since some people like differing amounts of basil. You can also stack it however you like. Some people stack it like a burger or even just have it as skewers. As long as those 3 items – Basil, mozzarella and tomatoes are in it, you can call it a Caprese Salad.

It’s a hit at parties because everyone loves cheese.
