Insalata Caprese Recipe

A classic Italian dish combining mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil that can double as a fresh appetizer or a light meal.

One of the keys to perfecting this dish is using the right tomato! In our opinion, avoid the large tomato varietals and stick with something a little smaller and flavorful, like a grape tomato or roma tomato. Put a slice on top of some fresh basil, soft mozzarella, gooey olive oil, and you’ll be talking with your hands in no time. Enjoy!
