Fancy Caprese Salad in under 5 minutes


I’m always on the look out for easy and elegant recipes for entertaining (or just for the hubs).  When I saw this recipe, I was two steps out the door to the grocery store for mozzarella cheese.  This is seriously super easy to make yet aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  Got a hot date coming over? Make this as a starter and he/she will fall head over heels for you. =)


Big tomatoes

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh basil leaves

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Sea Salt

Balsamic Glaze


Wash your tomatoes and basil leaves.

Stuff the mozzarella and basil in the tomato slices.  Drizzle Olive oil and the balsamic glaze to your liking, sprinkle some sea salt and enjoy!


Molto Delizioso!
