Insalata Caprese

Insalata Caprese is very simply a fresh salad made with sliced fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil leaves drizzled lightly with good olive oil…. there is a recurring theme here… fresh…. fresh quality ingredients are the most important… and I can tell you… it is wonderful.

I like to make a small plate of it and eat it for lunch.. I’m in heaven… so simple and so good!


Use fresh mozzarella… you can find it in the grocery store by the gourmet cheeses… it usually comes in container filled with water… or sometimes in completely sealed plastic. Its soft and so flavorful…

There is nothing like the taste and smell of fresh basil… once you’ve had it.. you will be devoted…

If you prefer, you can drizzle your favorite oil and vinegar dressing instead of just olive oil... Italian, Balsamic ... any one that you especially like.

Quantities have been left off… eat to your heart’s content!
