Caprese Salad

Beautiful vine ripened tomatoes and mozzarella go hand in hand. I like to serve a little one of these Caprese salads when we are having a light meal or before a bowl of pasta.

Buy the best tomatoes, mozzarella and balsamic vinegar you can find as the dish will be so much better.


2 large vine ripened tomatoes – the redder the better

1 large ball of mozzarella

Hand full of fresh basil leaves

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and cracked black pepper to season

Balsamic vinegar


I don’t need to tell you how to make a salad I’m sure so this is just an obvious guide.

Start by chopping your tomatoes into slices followed by your mozzarella. Arrange prettily on a plate and top with your fresh basil leaves. Drizzle over your extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper and finally pour over a little balsamic vinegar.
