insalata caprese

Insalata caprese is traditionally served with no other dressing than adrizzle of extra virgin olive oil, however a little good quality balsamic will also enhance the flavours. Be sure use vine ripened tomatoes for the best possible flavour.
what you need
6 vine ripened roma tomatoes
4 balls mozzerella cheese
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
15 young basil leaves
sea salt
cracked pepper
balsamic vinegar - optional

what to do
Slice the tomatoes, pouring off any excess juice, and slice the mozzerella a similar thickness.
Arrange alternative rows of tomato and mozzerella on a serving platter.
Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper, drizzle the olive oil over the top.
Tear the fresh basil leaves into pieces and scatter over the top.
Drizzle with balsamic when serving
