To prepare a different Caprese salad you will need just 2 (simple) ingredients more, and you will be delighted.
I first tried this different Caprese salad at Jazz Harbour, in Olbia, Italy. I liked it so much that I have prepared it more times at home. More than a real recipe, it is an excellent idea, as its taste increases a lot.
This advice works for all recipes, but especially for these that are eaten raw with no cooking at all: the quality of the ingredients you use is fundamental for your recipe’s success.
So please use good quality Italian mozzarella, so as mature and good tasting tomatoes and a high-quality extra virgin olive oil that will enhance the flavors of your dish. Anchovies and black olives paste will add a strong touch to this evergreen salad.
- Italian fresh mozzarella
- fresh basil leaves
- extra virgin olive oil
- black olives paste
- Wash well the tomatoes and cut them in halves or quarters, depending on their type and size.
- Cut mozzarella in small cubes and carefully wash basil leaves.
- Place them on a serving dish, add salt, basil leaves and a generous thread of extra virgin olive oil. Complete the dish adding anchovy fillets and small portions of black olives paste along with the dish.
- Serve and…
- Buon appetito!
