Insalata Caprese Salad Recipe

The Caprese salad is a typical salad of Campana cuisine, the summer recipe par excellence: Tomatoes and Mozzarella sliced, dressed with extra virgin olive oil, black olives, basil and oregano. A classic of the Mediterranean diet.

Perfect to serve as a fresh appetizer, but also as a main course, perhaps accompanied by slices of homemade bread, croutons or “freselle”. You can also prepare the Caprese salad as a side dish to accompany barbecues and summer dishes of any kind or as a finger food if made in single portions.
