Recipe | Insalata Caprese with a Spin

Sent in by Sue Ready

"Insalata Caprese is a simple salad from the Italian region of Campania (Capri). It is traditionally made with vine ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella slices, basil and seasoned with salt and pepper. The following recipe comes from a friend who puts a different spin on the traditional recipe. The presentation is what really makes this recipe. Bon Appetit!"
  • Tomato slices
  • Mozzarella or provolone cheese
  • Spinach leaves 
  • Prepared Vidalia Onion and Poppyseed Dressing
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Optional red onion slices 
  • Chopped fresh basil leaves

Starting at one end of serving plate alternate pieces of torn spinach leaves, 1/2 slice of cheese, tomato slice, basil or onion slice. Grate Parmesan cheese over plate and drizzle with dressing. Another serving suggestion: Make individual salad plates using same procedure as shown in photo by alternating spinach leaves, cheese, tomato, basil, grated Parmesan cheese and dressing.
