Caprese Salad with fresh Buffalo Mozzarella

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.
