Insalata Caprese with a small twist

   
This is my version of Insalata Caprese. My little twist is substituting mozzarella for queso freso (fresh cheese).
Insalata CapreseI love this salad, it makes me feel healthier after the first bite!

   
Here are the ingredients:

   
Cut the tomatoes, into thin slices. I used four tomatoes this time.
Also, slice the cheese.

   
For the dressing:
In a bowl, add one tablespoon of olive oil.

   
Then, one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.

   
Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

   
Mix well.
How easy is that?

   
Here is the fun part.
Arrange the tomato and cheese slices in slightly overlapping circles on a plate.

   
Drizzle with the dressing.

   
Sprinkle with the basil leaves on top.

   
We are done.

   
Buon appetito!
