Caprese salads show summer's best with creamy mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes topped with fresh leafy basil and fruity olive oil. Serve the salads individually or turn this simple Italian staple into a party by creating a DIY caprese salad bar where everyone can help themselves.
Place the mozzarella on a large board or platter with the drained mozzarella balls. Slice the tomatoes into wedges and assemble individual salads on plates with the mozzarella and basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
If desired, drizzle with balsamic glaze, seasoned salts, toasted pine nuts or add pesto and romesco sauce. Serve prosciutto on the side of desired.
Consider sprucing up your DIY Caprese Salad Bar even more by adding flavored salts and sauces. Pesto, romesco sauce, and olive spreads make great toppings. Use antipasto ingredients that compliment the Mediterranean palate as well. Sliced stone fruits and melons are terrific accompaniments as well.
