Caprese Salad  Recipe

Caprese Salad Recipe

• 1# Fresh Mozzarella
• Fresh Basil
• Tomato
• Olive Oil
• Balsamic Vinegar
• Oregano (hubby could not resist)
• Fresh Ground Pepper


• Cut the fresh mozzarella and tomatoes uniformly.
• Strip the vein from the fresh basil (I cut them out in a V).
• In a circle, layer tomatoes, basil, mozzarella until the circle is complete.
• Drizzle olive oil over circle, sprinkle balsamic vinegar, and grind fresh pepper over the top.
• While oregano is not normally used, hubby insists on giving the plate a sprinkle.

Hubby puts this together every summer get-together at our house, and it is always a big hit!

  1. Perfect ingredients-for a perfect combination.
    I’m so glad that fresh mozzarella is becoming more common in markets across America.
    Do you have a favorite balsamic vinegar? Those aged vinegars are EXPENSIVE and what do you think about those concentrated balsamic glazes?

    • Barbee, I don’t have a favorite. I have yet to use a concentrated glaze… how’s that worked for you?


      • I bought a bottle of the concentrate ages ago and have only used it a couple of times.
        I make a caramelized onion and swiss cheese tart that calls for vinegar in finishing the onions. I like it.

        Good thing it keeps forever-not a whole bunch of uses.

  2. One of my favorite ultimate salads!!
