Caprese Salad


The importance of using fresh ingredients has never been more pronounced than in the humble caprese salad. Its simplicity does not compromise the complex blend of flavours it packs as a dish, much less a salad. This is a light and refreshing snack for a panic or as a palate-cleansing starter to a scrumptious feast.
