Some things you just don’t mess with…Like: the remote control when the golf or football is on, re-working a Beatles classic and the Caprese Salad is one of those things not to be messed with. It’s as simple a thing you’ll ever make with just three ingredients: Mozzarella, Ripe Plum Tomatoes, Fresh Basil leave and a drizzle of olive oil. That said, I like to add just a little lemon zest, hardly a re-work.

By the way the dish was created to represent the Italian national flag of Green White & RedItaly-01-june.



  • Ripe Plum Tomatoes
  • Ball Buffalo Mozzarella
  • Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Lemon Zest


Step 1

Slice your tomato into rounds and place on a serving plate/dish and season with salt.

Step 2

Tear or cut mozzarella and place a piece on top of each tomato and top that with a basil leaf.

Step 3

Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle the lemon zest over. Serve.

I just like cooking great food..
