One of my favorite countries is by far Italy. Not only is it gorgeous and the people enthusiastic, but its fresh and vibrant food is delectable! One of my favorites is Caprese Salad. It’s very simple containing tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and some olive oil and salt and pepper. The colors showcase the Italian flag. This salad is commonly an antipasto (starter) for meals or can be enjoyed any time of the day!
Since traveling overseas is limited right now, bringing these amazing flavors into your own kitchen is the next best thing!
A couple fresh tomoatoes
Handful of fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Balsamic vinegar (optional and not traditional)
Slice the mozzarella and tomatoes. On plate layer everything in a wide circle making a pattern of green, white, and red and repeating. Drizzle plate with olive oil and salt and pepper.
