Mozzarella and Tomato Caprese 🇮🇹

One of the stories behind the birth of the Mozzarella and Tomato Caprese – known as Insalata Caprese (literally, salad from Capri), says that this simple and tasty dish was created on a construction site where a particularly patriotic bricklayer stuffed his sandwiches during lunch break with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil to recall the colors of the Italian flag. Let us say that after the win of the Italian football team at the European Championship we also feel a little patriotic, wanting to bring the Italian colors on our table to celebrate this success. 🇮🇹
