Caprese Salad – MixParty Style!

I love a good, fresh caprese salad.  In a world filled with Caprese-Salad-with-logofast food and preservatives, it’s nice to eat something fresh.  Using Mix Party’s flavored oils and vinegars put an awesome new twist to this classic favorite.

Start with a sliced tomato.  Not just any tomato – we need a juicy ripe tomato, preferably home grown or from a farmers’ market.

Next grab some mozzarella cheese.  Fresh quality mozzarella is needed — the kind that comes in a ball or vacuum-sealed bags.  Do not use low-moisture or aged mozzarella.

Now let’s get some fresh basil leaves.  Layer leaves between the tomatoes anBubbles_Gold_Rose_CMYKd cheese.

Now for the finishing touches.  Mix Party Extra Virgin Olive oil adds a nice full-bodied robust bite on the finish to complement the sweetness of the tomatoes and the creaminess of the cheese.  Layer with Mix Party Caramelized Balsamic Vinegar for a little bit of zip.  Garnish with salt and pepper.

This caprese salad pairs nicely with a glass of Mix Party Bubbles Rose.

Cheers!
