Insalata Caprese

So simple and easy but yet so delicious. This Italian staple is perfect for a spring/summer appetizer. It is refreshing and comes together in no time. You don't need any special appliances and no cooking required. This is perfect for a lazy, laid back day.

Recipe yields 4 servings

1/2 lb fresh mozzarella
1 beefsteak tomato
4 large basil leaves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Slice mozzarella into 1/4" slices and similarly prepare the tomato.

Arrange tomato slices on a serving platter. Top each with a slice of mozzarella. Then add on a basil leaf.

Drizzle the platter with olive oil and sprinkle on a pinch of salt and pepper. Pure perfection. Enjoy!
