Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad Recipe

A traditional insalata caprese (means salad from Capri) a light summertime salad, it is made of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil leaves drizzled with olive oil, that is what the classic recipe calls for.
In this recipe I added black olives and tuna to make it heartier, drizzled with the store-bought balsamic vinaigrette and it turned out awesome, so feel free to add your favourite additions.
This salad can be a side dish or a tasty appetizer and this would make a great summer meal on a hot day as well, it is easy to make and ready on the table in a flash.
