Tomato and Mozzarella Salad – Insalata Caprese is a simple Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, seasoned with salt and olive oil. Whilst this may be a simple dish, it is a refreshing side dish to many main dishes. It is a very appealing salad that can be made in advance and kept covered until needed.  However, never place the Tomato and Mozzarella Salad – Insalata Caprese in the fridge. The basil will spoil.  Also always use fresh Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This recipe has been classed as “easy” for obvious reasons but the flavour is immense.
