Caprese Salad – Remarkable Flavour in Under 5 Minutes

Simple, fast and extremely tasty…. A Caprese Salad is literally tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and olive oil. When cooking couldn’t get more simple, likely because you don’t need to cook anything!

Why Add Coppa or Bresaola To A Caprese Salad?

So prepare this and tear up a little Chipotle Coppa, Fennel Coppa or bresaola and place over the top. Rules and recipes are all meant to be broken!

If you’re able to source the best quality basil, extremely good ripe fresh juicy tomatoes that are balanced between sweet and savoury. Then you need to either find or make your own mozzarella. Having the best quality ingredients when this is merely a three ingredient dish makes all the difference.
