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
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.
