Caprese salad is Chase’s favorite salad. If he sees tomatoes go in the cart at the grocery store, he immediately asks, are you making my favorite salad?
This salad is as simple as it gets. Basil is one of my most favorite herbs. I use it anytime I can. I absolutely love tomatoes and they are good for you. That’s a bonus!
Serves 6-8 depending on how much cheese you want to eat.
1 pound of fresh mozzarella cheese (I use BelGioioso fresh sliced mozzarella)
1 pound of campari tomatoes, sliced (you can use any tomato you like, the fresher, the better)
Olive Oil (optional)
Arrange the sliced mozzarella on a plate. Arrange the tomatoes over the cheese and sprinkle with salt. Drizzle a little olive oil over it. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar over it. Top it with roughly chopped fresh basil or tuck the basil leaves in various places around the tomatoes and cheese. Serve it immediately. Voila! Easy Peasy!
