Caprese Salad

Caprese SaladThis is a perfect salad for a hot day (or any day for that matter). Simple, easy and full of flavor. I love the flavors of mozzarella, basil and tomatoes together and topping them with a really good balsamic vinegar makes it an irresistible salad.

  • Organic or home grown beefsteak or roma tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Layer tomatoes, cheese and basil then drizzle balsamic vinegar and finish off with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Enjoy!

    I battle to find a good mozzarella, but when I do, this recipe is top of the list.

    Thanks for visiting my site… glad you like the pictures. In regards to the printable recipes, I simply created a separate blog (very plain, no color, labels or archives) and copy and pasted my original recipe. I obviously leave out the photos too. I then create a link. Hope this helps.

    For the Love of Cooking
