Caperese Salad Recipe by Hotel Sahara Star

Caprese Salad (pronounced “cah-preh-zseh”) is a simple and elegant Italian salad, made of sliced fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, sweet basil, seasoned with salt, olive oil, or balsamic vinaigrette. The salad is named after the island of Capri, where it is believed to have originated. The salad features the colours of the Italian flag – green, white, and red.

Caprese salad can make a great summer time salad and is a healthy option for lunch or light dinner. Just don’t overload it with cheese and all the other ingredients are healthy!
