What is more refreshing and light for a summer lunch than a Caprese salad of fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes, and tender basil leaves? Italian cooking is all about simplicity and Insalata Caprese is the best example of this.

You will not have the best Caprese Salad if you don’t use the best and freshest ingredients. Ripe but firm tomatoes; Fresh ‘young’ leaves of Italian basil; Fresh Buffalo mozzarella cheese. Caprese Salad also deserves the best of extra-virgin olive oil. This is the moment to use that special bottle of extra-virgin you've reserved for special occasions.

Insalata Caprese is a simple and tasty salad with the colors of the Italian flag. Enjoy it at its best!
