CAPRESE SALAD

Mozzarella cheese gets its name from the Italian word “mozzare” which means “cut off” in reference to the manual cutting which is what mozzarella maker does to create the shape of the cheese.

In summer, the Caprese salad (its name derives from the island of Capri) is one of the most simple and fresh Italian dishes.
For a great Caprese you have to choose the best ingredients: high quality extra virgin olive oil, best red and juicy tomatoes, fresh basil and, of course, mozzarella from Italian buffalo milk (Mozzarella di bufala Campana).

I propose the recipe in its basic version with the addition of Sicilian rosemary.
