Miss K's Kitchen - Caprese salad with a twist

Salads are great throughout the year and this is a dish I often eat on its own or a small portion on the side of some ricotta and spinach ravioli. 

I first had the yummy tomato and red onion salad at Carluccios, at the time I did think it was a funny side to order but it goes so well together. 

But another lovely italian salad is the traditional caprese which is based on the italian flag, tomato, mozzarella and basil. 

For summer BBQs I serve my caprese salad on cocktail sticks

So why have one or the other if you can combine the two?

The bread to make it into bruschetta is optional, but here is what you need to make this version of my salad.

Ingredients - 
Mozzarella Ball (0.5 cm slices)
Beef Tomato (0.5cm slices)
Red onion (very thinly sliced)
Basil leaf 
Olive oil
mixed herbs
salt & pepper

How -
Prepare all your ingredients
Find your prettiest plate in your cupboard and get ready to layer up
Layer alternate slices of the tomato and mozzarella around the plate
Sprinkle your red onion all over the tomato and mozzarella 
Drizzle olive oil lightly over the ingredients, follow up with a sprinkle of mixed herbs, salt & pepper

Bread (optional) - 
Slice a french stick into slices (you decide size)
Grill each side to make into toast
Scrap the slices of toast with a clove of garlic
Drizzle with olive oil then place back under the grill for 30 seconds

Nice display for a starter or side dish with green pesto

lovely presentation example, optional to use balsamic vinegar if you wish

I will be sharing a few more of my favourite salads on the run up to summer. 

Let me know your favourite!
