I love a good, fresh caprese salad. In a world filled with fast 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 and 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.
