How easy, simple and delicious can a salad be? Well, the answer is very! Fresh tomatoes and creamy mozzarella covered with pesto sauce is the salad I am offering you in this post. It is very similar to Caprese salad however we replace the basil, salt and olive oil. In this recipe, I used the wonderful homemade pesto that I made with fresh basil, olive oil, pine nuts, parmesan and salt. (click on the link for the recipe)

For a full homemade experience, why not make your own mozzarella? When I was little, my grandmother used to make such amazing cheeses, but as I was a picky child, I didn’t like them. Only now do I realise what I was missing out on. Unfortunately, I can’t make homemade cheese, so I am using a store-bought one.

This combination of mozzarella, tomatoes and pesto is great not only for salad but also for pizza, if you want to try it here you can check out the recipe.

Ingredients

  • Tomatoes
  • Mozzarella
  • Basil pesto

How to make it

  • Cut the tomatoes into slices. Cut the mozzarella into slices and start arranging them, alternating one slice of tomato and one slice of mozzarella. Finally spread some of the pesto on top.
  • This is the easiest and most delicious salad. I strongly recommend it to you.
