I am obsessed with Caprese Salad. I eat it as a main dish, side dish, appetizer and even as a snack. Its the perfect dish and I want to keep eating it because its the perfect combination of flavours; cold, sweet, crunchy, cheesy…mmmmmmm!
Since I make this dish very often, I usually use a simple balsamic reduction, which results in a gorgeous presentation and a flavour to die for.
I truly believe this is my soul dish. Not even kidding.
As for the recipe, its so simple that even a 5 year old can make it.
- Layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a large, shallow platter.
- Drizzle the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Eat it just plain or serve with Bruschetta.
