Caprese Salad

I for Italy. No one needs introduction to Italy, right? Pastas, Spaghettis, pizzas etc., are so common these days. But check out this salad which will win hearts!! 

I was first introduced to fresh mozzarella cheese by my friend, Pooja. She made sure I tasted this salad at her place. This healthy salad is filling too. 

I found a similar recipe on the fresh mozzarella cheese pack as well. This is great party appetizer and easy to put together too. I wish I used fresh basil but I guess it doesn't spoil the fun of eating it in this form either!

Recipe Source Pooja 
Ingredients - 

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, cubed 1 cup
Tomato, cubed 1 cup
Basil (preferred Fresh but I used dried basil) as needed
Salt as needed
Pepper as needed
Olive Oil just a drizzle (optional)

Caprese Salad

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, cube the fresh mozzarella, tomato and sprinkle salt, pepper and dried basil.

Toss and drizzle olive oil. 

It is easy to serve it if they are threaded into toothpicks. So alternate between cheese, tomato and basil leaves for a colorful platter!

Preparation Time 5 min
Serves 3-4
