BLUEBERRY CAPRESE SALAD

 In Recipes

A Caprese salad is typically prepared using a few high-quality ingredients; fresh mozzarella, tasty tomatoes and fresh basil, seasoned only with good quality olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste. Vinegar is never used as it would overpower the simple flavour of the mild cheese.
