The best Caprese Salad is made with fresh ingredients. Sweet summer tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and fresh basil create the best taste in this classic Italian salad. This salad is easy to make and is a lovey display of color and taste on a serving platter.
Directions: Wash and dry your tomatoes. Slice each one into ¼” slices. Dry your Mozzarella with a paper towel and slice into ¼” slices. Pinch the fresh basil leaves off the stem. Smaller leaves can be used without slicing them. Larger leaves should be slivered.
On a serving platter, add a slice of tomato, then add a slice of mozzarella. Continue alternating the slices making rows or a circular pattern on the platter.
Place fresh slivered basil leaves in between the slices. Smaller basil leaves look nice scattered on top of the slices.
Drizzle the More Than Olives Arbequina “Estate” Olive Oil and the More Than Olives Traditional Aged Balsamic Vinegar on top of the tomato and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper.
