The most classic of mozzarella preparations - the Caprese ("cah-prey-zay") Salad! Insalata Caprese is the perfect summer dish, with fresh mozzarella, juicy ripe tomatoes and fragrant basil. But we think it can extend year-round! Consider using stone fruit like peaches, autumn squash, or apples! Get creative!
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 1 ball Caputo Brothers Creamery Fresh Mozzarella (or stretch your own!)
- 1 tomato
- 1 bunch fresh basil
- Slice fresh mozzarella & tomato into 1/4" thick slices.
- Directly on your serving platter, layer alternating slices of tomato and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf in between each layer.
- Drizzle with a good olive oil, serve & enjoy!
