Caprese salad is a simple Italian salad, comprising fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, seasoned with salt and olive oil.

Here's my take on it, adding in cucumber ribbons.

1 cucumber

300g mixed colour cherry tomatoes

12 cocktail size mozzarella balls

15g of fresh basil leaves torn


1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Sea salt

Serves 2/3

Takes 8 minutes

Slice a cucumber with a potato peeler all the way down the middle until it's all thinly sliced. Discard the end slices.

Chop the cherry tomatoes in half,

Tear the basil

Make the dressing buy combining the lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 

Top the cucumber with the chopped tomatoes, torn basil and mozzarella balls.

Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste!
