Caprese salad is one of the popular salad or appetizer. This is very simple to make. Fresh tomatoes and basil of the season, fresh slices of mozzarella with a little bit of seasoning makes a dreamy. delicious salad that no one can stop eating. This Italian appetizer or salad is one of our favorites and we order this every time we got an Italian restaurant.
This salad can be made in no time. Very simple and easy. Ingredients are fresh and simple and the recipe is simple too! The fresh tomatoes and basil of the summer gives wonderful flavor. Though this can be had any time of the year, the season's produce always has the peak flavor enhancing the flavor profile of the meal. All you need to do is stack the slices and sprinkle salt and pepper, drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. That easy.
We make this often in our home. Every time I pick tomatoes and basil from the garden, there will be requests for caprese salad. The fresh aroma of basil is addictive and we enjoy this very often. This is great to have in summer, it is no cook recipe! Yes, no heat when sun is scorching us! Also, this is a crowd pleaser like the Kochumber.
