Insalata Caprese (Tomato Mozzarella Salad)

I've been seeing the tomato mozzarella salad on TV and online and I had been curious on how it tastes. So I tried making some.

Tomato mozzarella salad, or Insalata Caprese, is a very simple Italian salad. All you need are slices of tomatoes, slices of mozzarella cheese and some basil leaves.

In the salad I made, I decided to use cherry tomatoes and bocconcini (mini mozzarella cheese). I bought these lovely Piccolo cherry tomatoes (still with stems) and a tub of bocconcini.

I usually am not a fan of tomatoes in salads, I always pass them to hubby. But these tomatoes are so sweet and delicious and juicy, I love them!
I sliced them in half instead of putting them whole

My tub of mini mozzarella


The salad should also have basil leaves, but I forgot to buy some. :D

After slicing the tomatoes in half and adding the bocconcini, I seasoned it with freshly ground sea salt and some pepper, plus a drizzle of olive oil. Presto! Insalata Caprese!

Try making them with large tomatoes and mozzarella cheese and slice them. This would also be perfect on toast! :)
