Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

Holly Clegg


  • 2 Cups  sliced tomatoes or Roma tomatoes
  • 3 Ounces  fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly
  • 3 Tablespoons  coarsely chopped fresh basil
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon  balsamic vinegar

This classic Italian salad is a must-have when tomatoes are at their best. Just a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar along with sweet, peppery basil highlights their natural flavor. And make sure to use the best mozzarella you can find. With ripe, juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil, this salad rocks!


In a shallow bowl or plate, layer or arrange the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Coat with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
