Caprese salad is a traditional Italian salad recipe that combines the bright Italian colours of red (tomato), white (cheese) and green (basil).
Bocconcini are small balls of fresh mozzarella, an Italian cheese made from buffalo milk but now also made from cow's milk. Soft and fresh they keep for 2 days in brine in the refrigerator.
This little nibble is like a mini Caprese in every bite. So easy to prepare, yet impressive when beautifully laid out on a white serving platter.
The classic colours of the caprese salad, but with avocado replacing the basil leaves. Wonderful served with ciabatta bread and good olive oil on the side.
A great way to serve the green, white and red colours of Italy - tomato, bocconcini and basil. You can find the bite-sized bocconcini at most supermarkets. If you can only get the large ones, cut them in half.
Thick slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, layered between slices of tomato and topped with torn strips of fresh basil then drizzled with olive oil. Delicious.
