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!

  28. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
