Mafia Princess Recipe...Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad...


  • 1/2 pound of fresh mozzarella, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 large vine ripened tomatoes, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • Coarse salt to taste
  • Two garlic cloves, finely cut (or a dash of garlic powder)
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 EVOO 

In a circular design around the side of a serving plate, alternate fresh mozzarella slices on a large platter (or on individual plates if you are doing individual portions) with sliced tomatoes, overlapping for effect.

Tear fresh basil leaves and sprinkle liberally over the slices. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle garlic and capers (if desired) over the top.

Just before serving, drizzle on some top-quality extra-virgin olive oil. NOTE: Insalata Caprese should 

never be allowed to sit in oil for any length of time and become soggy, and no vinegar of any kind goes on true Insalata Caprese!

Makes 4 servings.
