Caprese Salad



IMG_3144





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.
