In order to wish a happy 41th National Day to all our readers & followers, we prepared an Italian dish, with the colors of UAE flag: a special revisitation of the Insalata Caprese.
Insalata Caprese (salad in the style of Capri) is one of the simplest and most delicious of salads, from the Italian region of Campania, made of sliced fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, seasoned with salt, and olive oil. In Italy, unlike most salads, it is usually served as an antipasto (starter). Some variations include adding olives.
- Slice each tomato from top to bottom into 1cm thick slices.
- Place on a serving plate and top with the bocconcini and basil leaves.
- Just before serving, drizzle the salad with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
In this rivisitation, tomatoes are not sliced, cause we used small tomatoes (pomodorini), and we realized the green and black part of the flag with olives.
