CAPRESE SALAD



Caprese Salad image

My husband and I love Caprese salad, but not the high prices we pay for it in restaurants. Here, we created our own version which tastes incredibly close, if not better, than any restaurant version we've tried. -Melissa Pearson, Sandy, Utah

CAPRESE SALAD

Categories     side-dish

Time 1h

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 7

2 cups balsamic vinegar
3 ripe tomatoes
12 ounces fresh mozzarella, thickly sliced
Large bunch fresh basil leaves
Olive oil, for drizzling
Large pinch kosher salt
Large pinch freshly ground black pepper

Steps:

  • Measure the balsamic vinegar and pour into a saucepan. Bring it to a gentle boil over a low heat. Cook it until the balsamic vinegar has reduced to a nice thick glaze (but still pourable), about 15 minutes. Oh and one other thing, your house will stink. But it's a good kind of stink, it's a vinegary stink. Allow the reduction to cool to room temperature before you serve it.
  • When you are ready to assemble the salad, cut the tomatoes into thick slices. Arrange them on a platter, alternating them with the mozzarella slices. Tuck the whole basil leaves in between the tomato and cheese slices.
  • Drizzle on the gorgeous, almost black balsamic reduction. Then drizzle olive oil in a thin stream over the top. Finally, sprinkle on salt and pepper.
  • You need this in your life. Make it today my friends.

  • With a serrated knife, cut the tomatoes into 1/4″ thick slices. Arrange them on a large serving platter, overlapping their edges and varying the shapes as best you can.
  • Cut the burrata or mozzarella into 1/4″ to 1/2″ slices (burrata is tricky since the inside is so creamy; I cut it into 1/2″ slices and gently tugged the slices into smaller sections, see photos). Tuck the cheese around and underneath the tomatoes, dispersing it relatively evenly across the platter.
  • Sprinkle basil leaves all over, and tuck a few more into the crevices. Drizzle the olive oil over the salad. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  • For the best flavor (if you have the time), let the salad rest for 30 minutes so the tomatoes release some juices and the flavors have time to mingle. This salad is best served within a few hours. Leftovers will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 3 days.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST CAPRESE SALAD - SERIOUS EATS

From seriouseats.com
  • Get Excellent Tomatoes. This is the hardest step, but not that hard if it's the height of tomato season, toward the end of summer. If you've got a farmers market nearby (or, even better, a neighbor or backyard with tomato vines), hit it up.
  • Get Excellent Fresh Mozzarella. Fresh mozzarella comes in a few forms, in decreasing order of goodness. And, to be clear, we're talking fresh, as in the pale white stuff that comes in balls, either in brine or in vacuum-sealed bags.
  • Get Excellent Basil. This is your easiest task. Look for bright green, non-limp, sweet Italian basil. I prefer the smaller leaves, but that's almost purely for aesthetic reasons.
  • Get Excellent Olive Oil. In this day and age, there's no excuse for using terrible, flavorless olive oil anymore. There's good stuff widely available in pretty much every supermarket in the country.
  • Crunchy Salt and Coarsely Ground Pepper. Last ingredients here. So far our salad is soft on soft on soft, drizzled with liquid. But we want a little bit of texture here, right?
  • Don't F#&k With It. This is by far the most important rule. With most recipes, once you've gathered the ingredients, you're ready to begin cooking.

Top Asked Questions

What's the best way to make Caprese salad?
This classic Italian caprese salad is quintessential summer fare. Serve with a chilled white wine and enjoy in the sunshine or on a balmy summer evening! Arrange tomato slices, mozzarella slices, and basil leaves on a serving plate, alternating between them. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
What kind of salad is from Capri Italy?
Caprese salad (also known as insalata caprese) is a classic Italian salad from the island of Capri. It’s made from only a handful of fresh ingredients and couldn’t be easier to make. It’s simple, juicy, creamy and always what I order when I’m traveling Italy.
How long can you keep Caprese salad in the refrigerator?
A Caprese Salad is one of those recipes that should be eaten immediately, but if you do have a little leftover, cover it in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for no more than two days. The mozzarella and tomatoes should be at room temperature, so remove both from the refrigerator one hour before preparing.
Which is better Caprese salad or full ripe tomatoes?
His caprese is crunchy and refreshingly sour – quite a different dish to one made with fully ripe tomatoes. My testers enjoy it while also regretting the loss of sweetness, so I think a mixture of different varieties is ideal if you can find them.
