Insalata Caprese


This is a beautiful salad - Toninos on M G Road makes a lovely one - this is the first time I made it at home. Simple and delicious. Tomatoes, Mozarella Cheese, crushed pepper, salt, extra virgin olive oil and parsley (should have been basil leaves but didn't find any). Less than 5 ingredients to Nirvana

Basically, just slice and layer the tomatoes and the mozarella and then drizzle the olive oil, season and garnish with herbs. The important thing is to use really fresh and good quality ingredients - so the tomatoes should be nice and juicy, some nice mozarella and extra virgin olive oil.

Knife - think you meant tomstoes and mozarella - and yes it is. Perfect the salt and juiciness.

Its tough to find the correct basil plant - you are often palmed off holy basil (tulsi) instead of the other one - or even Thai basil which is not the same.

This is perfect summer food, Miri. A delicious meal without having to sweat it out in the kitchen.
