Italian Caprese Salad

Recipe of the Week, Italian Caprese Salad

 

One of Italians favorite summer salads is the Caprese Salad, Insalata Caprese in Italian.

 

It is a very simple and delicious salad made with tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil and basil.

 

The secret to a great Caprese Salad is all in the ingredients:

 

sun-ripened tomatoes and basil, good Mozzarella, from buffalo (not bison!) milk if possible, and excellent olive oil.

Scatter over the basil leaves, then drizzle over with a sweet balsamic reduction and the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

 

The secret key for a yummy Caprese Salad is to use the most genuine and fresh ingredients, so make sure you take the best ones available!

 

I like to enjoy my Caprese Salad with a fresh loaf of crispy Italian bread,

 

a nice glass of white wine…

 

for example a Vernaccia di San Gimignano riserva (D.O.C.G.), and the company of a loved one….

 

 

 

 

No matter which way you serve it, one thing is for sure,

it is always delicious…

 

Enjoy!
