Insalata caprese has a few variation, but I wouldn't stray from the original ingredients of this dish. Why tamper with perfection.
Whether served for lunch or before dinner, a tomato, basil and mozzarella salad would be a great dish to severe before any Italian meal.
4 large beefsteak tomatoes
1 package of fresh mozzarella cheese
20 sprigs of fresh basil
5 Tbs of extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbs of balsamic vinegar
fresh ground pepper
Slice tomatoes around a 1/4in. thick.
Slice mozzarella cheese 1/4in. thick.
Arrange on a serving platter alternating tomatoes and mozzarella.
Top with sprigs of fresh basil
Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Add salt and pepper
A simple variation of this dish would be to use bocconchini (small round baby mozzarella) and cherry tomatoes.
