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:

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!
