I love Caprese salad, so simple and yet so delicious. The key to this salad is finding bocconcini that has a nice flavour. I bought Saputo from the deli counter at Loblaws and compared it to the pearl sized ones in a tub (can’t rember the brand) and it was a world of difference, the deli one was so much better.
2 C red grape tomatoes, halved
1 C yellow heirlooms tomatoes, halved
1 C bocconcini drained, depending on size cut into chunks
¼ C basil leaves chopped (or if they are small enough left whole)
1 tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp good quality balsamic
¼ C extra virgin olive oil
1. Mix all the ingredients in a large glass bowl and enjoy both the taste and look!
