Caprese Salad

salata kapreze

Caprese salad is a famous salad of Italian gastronomy! Over the years it has been established on the Greek table, due to its special taste and its convenience. Its main ingredients are mozzarella (preferably from buffalo milk - mozzarella di bufala), tomato, and basil. The salad can be eaten all year round, but we prefer it during the summer months since it is tomato season!

  • Wash the cherry tomatoes well, cut them in half, and add them to a bowl
  • Cut the mozzarella into four pieces, and add it to the bowl along with the olive oil, fleur de sel, and Messino balsamic glaze with basil
  • Mix your ingredients well and serve elaborately on a plate
  • Finally, garnish with rocket and basil leaves and pour some more Basil Balsamic Cream
  • For greater enjoyment, accompany with slices of fresh, rustic, sourdough bread

Extra Tip:

  • We make sure that our buffalo mozzarella has dried from extra water and liquids by leaving it for 10 to 15 minutes before using it on a cutting board. For extra Italian taste, we recommend adding some homemade basil pesto
  • If we want a more gourmet and refined appearance, try to serve the dish by highlighting the ingredients! We simply alternate between the slices of tomato and mozzarella, and serve one on top of the other. In the end, garnish with basil leaves and drizzle with a little olive oil and of course Messino Basil balsamic glaze
