Caprese: Tomato, Basil and Fresh Mozzarella Salad

August 18, 2010 | Posted by admin

On a recent trip to the Tuscany region of northeast Italia, one standard-fare salad continued to bring rave reviews from our traveling troupe.

Called Caprese, this classic creation is best when the mozzarella is freshly made and the tomatoes are perfectly ripened.  Adding FruitFast’s Wonderful Pomegranate Liquid Fruit Supplement is the ideal final touch.

Ingredients:

InsalataCaprese3

2         Tbsp minced red onion
1/4      cup balsamic vinegar
3/4       cup olive oil
Salt and pepper

1          small red onion, sliced thin
12 oz   fresh mozzarella, sliced
2          tomatoes, sliced
1/2       cup basil leaves
1          Tbsp FruitFast Pomegranate Liquid

Directions:

Prepare the vinaigrette by stirring the minced red onion and vinegar together, whisk in the olive oil.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Toss the sliced red onion with 2 Tbsp of the vinaigrette.  Arrange on plate, alternating the mozzarella slices, sliced tomatoes and red onion.  Add basil leaves.  Spoon on remaining vinaigrette, drizzle with FruitFast Pomegranate Liquid.

Yield:   2-4 servings
