Without a doubt you’ll amaze all your loved ones with this stunning Caprese Salad. I for sure stole some hearts when I served this on the table as a sidedish to go with our lavish BBQ last week. Everybody knows.. Love goes through the stomach ;D ! Scroll down to check out my super easy but unbelievable delish recipe.
Ingredients (for 1 big plate as a sidedish):
1 Buffalo mozzarella (organic is the best)
2 handful of honey tomatoes (cherry tomatoes are fine too)
2 handful of yellow tomatoes
Some fresh basil leaves (don’t throw away the stems of the basil, use that to make the dressing)
Use the stems of the fresh basil (this way you don’t throw anything away
4 spoons of good quality olive oil
½ fresh lemon juice
A pinch of salt and pepper (to your taste)
Well this really ain’t no rocketscience honey. Let’s start making your fresh basil oil first, by blending all the ingredients together using a kitchenmachine (if you don’t have a kitchenmachine, use the fresh basil leaves instead of the stems and cut them finely and mix that with the rest of the ingredients) and add the salt and pepper to taste.
As you can see on my picture, I just cut the tomatoes in slices, mixed them on a plate together with some fresh basil leaves. Now it’s time to drizzle the oil on top of it all. Use your hands to make small chunks out of the mozzarella (I love using my hands while cooking) . If you like, you can add again some fresh basil leaves on top and TADAAAA you are done!
