What is "Insalata Caprese"?
Insalata caprese’ means ‘Capri salad’ in Italian. It consists of tomato, mozzarella and basil, and is usually dressed with a little olive oil.
You can easily make one at home by slicing a mozzarella into thin rounds, doing the same with the tomato. You alternate the slices, tuck in fresh basil leaves (or scatter them on top), dress with a little olive oil, add some salt and pepper to taste, and you have made an Insalata Caprese in under 5 minutes!
The green, white, and red of the ingredients mimics the colors of the Italian flag – this is a very popular salad in Italy.
