All Skill Level Cooks 10 Minutes
The salad was invented in 1950's at the "Trattoria Da Vincenzo" on the beach Marina Piccola of Capri, Italy. The La Caprese salad was born so that the ladies could "have a nice lunch while still fitting into their bikinis."

• 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4-inch thick

• 2 large ripe tomatoes, sold on the vine, sliced 1/4-inch thick

• 1 cup fresh basil leaves

• Salt and freshly ground pepper

• 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or, even better, olive oil infused with truffles

• A plate for presenting your salad

Preparation (Do it!)
1) On a large plate, layer cheese, tomato and basil in individual layers. Drizzle olive oil over salad and season with salt and pepper. Or do a freestyle presentation.
