A salad is only as good as the ingredients that go into it. This recipe is more of a guideline than anything. Buffalo cheese is luxurious, but any fresh mozzarella will work.
Serves 5 people
6 medium vine ripened tomatoes
3 balls of buffalo mozzarella (Or Mozzerella di Bufala in Italian.)
Micro Basil (Regular Basil will work just as well.)
Olive oil (To taste.)
Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
Use a sharp knife to slice the tomatoes on a clean cutting board. Also, slice the buffalo mozzarella the same way. Arrange the tomato and cheese on a plate. Season the tomatoes and cheese. Drizzle olive oil over the salad. Garnish the salad with the basil and you’re finished.
Nothing beats Caprese salad. I know it’s winter, but you can still purchase some nice greenhouse tomatoes here in Vancouver, BC.
