Caprese Salad


We have the perfect summer in Ottawa this year. Sunny and warm, can't ask for better. We love salads in the summer. Tre Stelle contacted me to ask if I wanted to try their Bocconcini Medallions. The product is new and my grocery store do not carry the product yet. I bought the Tre Stelle Bocconcini that the store had and sliced the balls into thin slices for my salad. Mixed with tomatoes, fresh basil, it makes a delicious, refreshing salad. I like the creamy texture of the Bocconcini fresh mozzarella balls.

Caprese Salad:
2 large ripe tomatoes, cut into slices
1 tub 200g Tre Stelle Bocconcini Medallions, drained
60 ml fresh basil leaves
45 ml olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

On a medium platter, alternate and overlap the tomato slices with the tre Stelle Bocconcini Medallions. Randomly arrange basil leaves on top; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Makes 2-4 servings.
