Recipe of the Week: Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad

A delicious and simple recipe for Italy’s Liberation Day: green, white and red!

April 25th is Italy’s Liberation Day and a National holiday. It celebrates the end of the Italian Civil War and the end of the Nazi Occupation of Italy during World War II.

It’s a great day to celebrate and remember.

We chose a symbolic recipe for this day, a delicious salad with the  colors of the Italian flag: green, white and red.

An old favorite, the fresh tomatoes basil mozzarella salad: a fresh dish perfect as an appetizer or a light second course. All you need is four ingredients:

  • Ripe Tomatoes
  • Fresh Mozzarella
  • Fresh  basil just picked from the plant
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Directions:
Cut the tomatoes and the sliced mozzarella with the same thickness. Alternate a slice of tomato and one of mozzarella. Add fresh basil and pour extra-virgin olive oil, add salt.

Some recipes use oregano in place of basil or both.
