Caprese Salad

Looking to dazzle your guests this holiday season in a simply elegant dish?  This D’Ambrosio family caprese salad is an easy, fresh and flavourful dish that is great as an appetizer or as a vegetable side dish.


Serves: 6

Prep time: 10 minutes



2 large tomatoes, sliced

1 cup bocconcini, sliced

Drizzle with olive oil on top

Sprinkle aged balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar

6-10 fresh basil leaves

Season with fresh ground salt and pepper to taste



  1. Clean tomatoes and slice to desired thickness.
  2. Arrange tomato slices alternating with bocconcini cheese on plate.
  3. Top with basil leaves for garnish.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. Usually I use a ratio of twice as much olive oil to acid.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste
