Caprese Salad

A personal take on an Italian classic recipe

This is my own version of insalata caprese but it is not far from the original recipe … I think. Anyway, the original uses generous slices of  fresh mozzarella which I replaced with bocconcini, still mozzarella cheese but in a cuter form and Campari tomatoes, best tomatoes out there. Add all this to my favorite breakfast, eggs and sausages and you have a winner.

Insalata Caprese
Serves: 1 serving
  • ½ cup bocconcini, small
  • 1 cup Campari tomatoes
  • basil, chopped or whole leaves
  • 1 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  1. Again not a big deal making this thing. Chop tomatoes, mix everything together, sprinkle some basil (the more the merrier) and use the good balsamic and olive oil... it is worth it.
  2. salt and pepper to taste
