THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS SALAD
This is one of the simplest salads of all time to create. It’s from Purely Delicious and makes the perfect addition to a festive Christmas lunch. The flavour of this magnificent salad depends solely on the quality of the ingredients you use. I especially enjoy making this over the summer months, as juicy, ripe tomatoes are bountiful and at their seasonal best.
The ingredients in a classic Caprese Salad are very minimal – tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, olive oil, a little lemon, salt and pepper. This is the way it should be eaten and the clean classic flavours are glorious, with every mouthful being pure heaven. Buffalo mozzarella is traditionally used to make Caprese and it’s just glorious with fresh sun-ripened tomatoes ! I love to gently open up the mozzarella with my fingertips and arrange it loosely beside juicy tomatoes.
