Introduction: The Caprese Salad - a Refreshing and Tasty Meal

Even if you are a veggie and you are looking for a great, refreshing, and tasty dish for your summer try my Caprese Salad! 

This dish can be served as a starter or a main course. In this Instructable I will give you the quantities for a starter, if you want them for a main course, just double them.

For a perfect Caprese Salad you will need:
- 1 Fresh organic big tomato (Heirloom tomatoes are the best)
- 1/2 of a Mozzarella de Bufflonne bowl
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh basil
- Few grains of "Fleur de sel"
- Pepper

How to prepare it?
1. Remove the stem from the center of the tomato
2. Slice tomatoes
3. Using a moistened knife with a thin, very sharp blade, slice mozzarella
4. Cut some basil leafs
5. Arrange tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil on a platter as sown in the main picture
6. Cover generously with olive oil tomatoes, mozzarella and basil
7. Add a pinch of Fleur de Sel and Pepper

And it's ready! Enjoy your meal!

I love caprese salad! But how is this in any way vegan? The mozzarella is an animal product. Or do you mean vegetarian?

Nice, looks tasty! I've toyed with this a touch, and use basil paste instead of leaves for a more intense punch. Additionally I invite you to try your recipe with an some balsamic vinegar, it's a good counter!
