Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad

This recipe is perfect for clients following our Meat Lovers Delight menu, for other menu plans you can find great recipes here.

Fresh mozzarella is an almost perfect cheese; it's mild, cool and refreshing. Caprese salad is a classic dish, with just a few simple ingredients. Due to the simplicity, the quality of the ingredients you choose REALLY matters. For maximum flavor, we suggest you buy a high-quality mozzarella cheese, use organic heirloom tomatoes, and fresh basil (strive for at least 2 out of 3).


  • 1 large heirloom tomato (or 2 small), sliced into rounds
  • 2-3 ounces fresh mozzarella, drained and sliced into rounds
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Alternating layers, arrange tomatoes, whole basil leaves, and mozzarella on a plate.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add lemon juice, slowly whisk in oil.
  3. Season oil with salt and pepper.
  4. Drizzle over tomatoes and mozzarella.
  5. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
