  • Preparation Time: 15

Ingredients

  • 6 large tomatoes (leave at room temperature)
  • 2 soft mozzarella balls
  • Basil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar

Directions

  • 1. Slice the tomatoes into ½” thick slices. Lightly salt and set aside.
  • 2. Slice the mozzarella balls into thin slices. The idea is to have one slice of mozzarella for each slice of tomato.
  • 3. Wash the basil and tear off enough leaves so that you have one for each slice of tomato.
  • 4. Now you are going to arrange the salad: tomato, mozzarella, basil, tomato, mozzarella, basil, tomato, mozzarella, basil… continue until you run out of tomatoes.
  • 5. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Wisk and add pepper to taste.
  • 6. Last step: Drizzle the olive oil mixture so that each tomato and mozzarella receives a lick. Let it set to soak in the goodness of the dressing.
  • 7. Serve and wait for all the ooohhhhs and ahhhhhhs.

Notes

Why not balance your menu and add the delicious caprese salad. Pronounced phonetically as “kah-press-ay,” this salad not only looks pretty, it is also very delicious, refreshing, and easy to prepare.
