You can never go wrong with the fresh taste of a Caprese Salad. This easy to prepare salad not only tastes great but looks even better.

In the style of the island of Capri, this salad will bring you the relaxing pleasure you deserve. There's nothing better than sharing a great conversation with your family and friends. Savor the moments. Savor this salad.

Here is another great salad that should be eaten with a glass of wine. To avoid being repetitious, just go out and buy enough wine to get you through all the recipes in this site.

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.
