Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

This is the most popular Italian salad and now I can see why ... Soft mozzarella combined with juicy tomatoes and savoury pesto sauce - it's a taste you will never forget.

And the coolest thing is that it's really quick (you only need to find good basil) and it would definitely make an impression at a festive meal and be much appreciated.


4 pieces
pick medium sized, good quality tomatoes
300 g
make sure the mozzarella and the tomatoes are about the same size
5 pieces
Herbes de Provence
0.5 tsp
Extravirgin olive oil
2 tsp

Step by step

Step 1

Cut the tomatoes and the mozzarella into 3-4 mm thick equal slices.

On a plate alternate slices of tomaoes, mozzarella and a basil leaf. Repeat until you cover the whole plate.

Step 3

Use a spoon to carefully spread the pesto sauce. Try not to scatter it too much - make it look like a thread over all the ingredients.

Step 4

Then drizzle olive oil on top and, optionally, sprinkle with some herbes de Provence.

And it's ready!

Step 5

If you don't have good tomatoes, it's better to use cherry tomatoes - they are more flavourful and crisp. 

In this case, use mozzarella balls, to make it nice :)
