Salad Caprese is a traditional Italian dish that is made with fresh mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and basil. It is usually seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper. The name “Caprese” comes from the island of Capri, where the dish originated. The dish is simple and easy to make, and it’s a perfect summer dish.
Here is a recipe for making Salad Caprese:
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
On a large plate or platter, alternate the slices of tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
Tear the basil leaves and sprinkle them over the top of the salad.
Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the salad and season with salt and pepper.
