After using fresh Mozzarella cheese for Pizza Margherita, I am almost always left with a chunk of cheese. I use it for making "Salad Caprese". This is the simplest salad of them all. Just make sure that all the ingredients are super fresh.
About 6-7 pieces of fresh Mozzarella cheese
1 ripe yet firm tomato, cut into circles
few fresh basil leaves, torn
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
1. Arrange fresh cheese, tomatoes and basil leaves as shown above.
2. Sprinkle salt and black pepper
3. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil.
1. Tomato has to be very fresh and firm.
