Caprese Salad

Mmmmmm Caprese, this must be Italian and somehow it is, it is very Italian but it is by now one of the most favorite salads in any corner of the world. The fancy name of Caprese is actually just a simple Tomato and Mozzarella salad, but not just any Mozzarella, it has to be Buffalo Mozzarella.

Buffalo Mozzarella is a fresh cheese that is usually sold in bags swimming in its own water. The taste is absolutely delicious and cannot be compared with these "Mozzarella" Blocks one buys to grate and put on the Pizza. There are as well normal Mozarella balls made from cows milk, they are made exactly the same way like Buffalo Mozzarella, just instead of Buffalo milk one takes Cow's milk.

I see even here this salad is so popular, served not just with Arugla (Rocket) but as well some Endive and Radiccio Lettuce for the color. Of course there is basil and then we make a reduction of Balsamic vinegar and a bit honey that is then mixed up with some really nice Olive Oil

So enough talking, I am getting
already get hungry just thinking about it

10 Each Tomatoes
5 Balls Buffalo Mozzarella
1 Bunch Basil
1 Bunch Rocket lettuce
1 Head Endive lettuce
1 Head Radiccio lettuce
100 Ml Olive Oil
100 Ml Balsamic Vinegar
30 G Honey
Salt Pepper black

Slice the tomatoes Slice the buffalo Mozzarella
Clean the lettuce leaves
Place the lettuce prettily on a large plate
Layer one slice of tomato and then one slice of mozzarella always with a little basil between each slice
Reduce Balsamic vinegar with honey to half
Cool down completely
Drizzle salad with Olive Oil and Balsamic Add some ground pepper


  1. I just wanted to thank you for following my blog. To "spread the love” I tried to click through to some of your commercial content - but the "nuffnang" box had an error message.
