No Fuss Caprese Salad
  • 8 oz of fresh Mozzarella Pearls
  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, washed and dried
  • 6-8 large Basil leaves, washed and dried.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil (optional)
  1. Drain the Mozzarella balls and pour them into a mixing bowl.
  2. Slice the tomatoes in half and add them to the mozzarella.
  3. Stack the basil leave on top of each other and then roll the stacked leaves up like a cigar. Using a sharp knife, cut across the rolled leaves, creating thin (chiffonade) strips of basil.
  4. Add the basil to the bowl, stirring the ingredients to combine.
  5. Sprinkle with plenty of cracked black pepper and then add salt to taste.
  6. Optional -- drizzle a small amount (1-2 teaspoons) of good quality olive oil and toss to combine.
  7. Serve.
