Since the kick-off of summer, my meals have been quick and possibly with no or little cooking involved. So as you can imagine, I have been preparing loads of salads, using a lot of seasonal products.

Caprese salad is a classic Italian dish. True, you basically need tomatoes and mozzarella, but you need to get high-quality ingredients for the best result! I got these tomatoes from the local market and chose the most ripen tomatoes for the best taste. I used buffalo mozzarella from Campania, which we got from a local Italian deli. To give it a little twist, I prepare a basil balsamic vinaigrette with fresh basil from the garden and balsamic vinegar from Modena. Simply delicious.

  1. Prepare the dressing by combining the olive oil and vinegar, mixing them well with a spoon. Add salt and basil, finely chopped and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Slice the tomato and cut the cherry tomatoes in halves. Place them on a place and add the mozzarella in the centre. Drizzle the vinaigrette all over the caprese salad.
