Classic Caprese Salad

Jul 5, 2022 | Recipe, Salad

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 lovely display of color and taste on a serving platter. 

Servings: 4 servings


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.

Serve immediately.

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
