Insalata Caprese (Caprese Salad)

Jun 16, 2021Kyle Carter

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


  1. Slice fresh mozzarella & tomato into 1/4" thick slices.  
  2. Directly on your serving platter, layer alternating slices of tomato and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf in between each layer.
  3. Drizzle with a good olive oil, serve & enjoy!

Buon Appetito!
