Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

Probably the most simplest salad on the planet, consisting of just two main ingredients: Tomatoes and mozzarella. As Italians invented this delicious combination of simple flavours, not only they created a quick tasty appetiser, but they also managed to incorporate the national colours present on the Italian flag (red, green and white).

Tips

  • Mozzarella is the most important ingredient of this dish. Try buffalo mozzarella to bring it to the next level.
  • If you don’t have fresh basil at home, you can also use dried one or experiment with dried oregano.
  • Instead of  basil try out fresh basil pesto to enhance this appetiser with a special twist. (Be careful then with the amount of olive oil).
