Italian Caprese Salad

What's the big idea?

The caprese salad is from Capri and Campania, so is perfect if your party has a Neapolitan theme. But actually this simple dish is made and enjoyed everywhere in Italy, especially in spring and summer. Easy, fresh and deliciously Mediterranean, this simple salad makes a great starter.

Serve with some toasted bread or bread sticks

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • Fresh red tomatoes - the tradition in campania would be to use pachino tomatoes
  • Buffalo mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • A little olive oil

What To Do

  • Slice the tomatoes, and leave to stand where some of the juice can be allowed to drain away
  • Slice the mozzarella as well and let the milk drain away
  • Arrange the mozzarella and tomato slices on a serving plate, alternating between the two. Decorate with the basil leaves
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and finally drizzle with olive oil
