Caprese is one of the most simple salads, and it is also one of my favorites. In Italy it is typically a summer dish and is best made with fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes and mozzarella bufala, or mozzarella made from the milk of a water buffalo. After layering slices of tomato and mozzarella, it is topped with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, a bit of oregano, and fresh basil leaves if you have them. And that’s it! Enjoy with a glass of wine and toasted bread.
