My Insalata Caprese


An ‘Insalata Caprese’ is a salad consisting of fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and olive oil. I love this salad and like to experiment with variations of it. This is my favourite, and consists of:

  • fresh buffalo mozzarella balls
  • sun-blushed tomatoes
  • artisanal semi-sour black olives
  • fresh mint
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • a little chilli powder
  • extra virgin olive oil (or chilli oil)
  • a squeeze of lemon

It’s an excellent, light and healthy summer snack and you can also use it as a side-dish, or a platter with white wine on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon.
