Caprese Salad

kotturinn4 months ago

Finally a recipe . . . sorta

Now that I got to go grocery shopping and actually have the things and the means to cook, I present you this caprese salad, which is your basic salad minus the balsamic vinegar. Since I am not a big fan of it, I decided to skip it. However I plan on making it again here in a few days and what I am going to do, I will cook what they call a balsamic reduction, which is balsamic vinegar and honey simmered down or reduced if you please. I think that would be way way better than simple vinegar.


  • EVOO;
  • baby heirloom tomatoes;
  • fresh mozzarella cheese;
  • salt and pepper to taste;
  • fresh basil leaves.


Wash and cut your tomatoes, assemble the ingredients on a plate. Drizzle a desired amount of extra virgin olive oil on top, sprinkle some salt and freshly cracked black pepper or pepper medley. Enjoy!

The images were taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a Canon EF 24-105mm - F/4 lens.
