Easy Caprese Salad

This Easy Caprese Salad is fresh, easy to make, and is bursting with delicious flavour! Best made with garden fresh tomatoes and basil.


  • 6 vine ripened tomatoes (or 2 cups of grape tomatoes)
  • Bocconcini cheese (we use one of the large balls)
  • large handfuls of fresh basil leaves
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or a balsamic vinegar reduction
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper


  1. Slice tomatoes and bocconcini cheese. Or we like to tear up the cheese instead – it’s a really nice texture when you eat it like this.
  2. On a serving platter, layer slices of tomatoes, bocconcini cheese and basil leaves.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or a balsamic vinegar reduction.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Enjoy!
