Ingredients
Method
 
  • 1 large or 2 small tasty tomatoes
  • 150 g Mozzarella di Bufala
  • 4 tbs pesto (To me it is worth making the fresh one and here is my favorite recipe. Or use your favorite ready made pesto)
  • handful of pine nuts
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • balzamic vinegar
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
Slice the tomatos and mozzarella around 8 mm thick.

Arrange them on the serving dish the way you prefer. I like the classic way when you alter the slices of tomatoes with mozzarella and arrange them in a semicircle.

Complement the salad by the pesto. I serve it in a separate sauce cup, but you can do whatever you like, e.g. spoon it over tomatos or pour onto the dish.

Sprinkle with pine nuts and drizzle with olive oil. Get a glass of nice white wine and enjoy.

Caprese is my most ever favorite salad. Everything is just perfect about it. Every time I make it I get surprised once again by its beauty. Especially given that all I need to do is to slice tomatoes and mozzarella.
