Caprese Salad

We're not going to write here about the origins of this salad, because you can Wiki that. We love this salad, as it's fresh, flavourful, and brings out the best of basil, ripe tomatoes and chewy mozzarella cheese. Classic stuff.

Type of dish: snack, salad
Cost: cheap
Difficulty:  easy
Time:  5 min
Serves: 1-2
Preparation time: 5min

What you need to make this dish:
Cutting board, plate , sharp knife

  • 1 tomato
  • 1 mozzarella
  • Colored pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3-4 basil leaves
  • Olive oil

How to prepare:
Wash the tomato, and slice in 3-4 mm slices. Cut the cheese same way. On the plate, lay one slice of tomato, on it a mozzarella slice,  continue with rest until you have your plate set. Drizzle over some olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Now roll up the basil leaves so they look like a cigar, and cut them rolled. Sprinkle the plate with this and serve!

Additional information:
You may use dried tomatoes for a different taste, or spread a tsp of pesto on the plate before laying out the tomato and cheese. If you have a rectangular plate, serve up in a line, with chopped basil leaves on the tomatoes and mozzarella.
