Caprese is an easy appetizer to put together and it’s so delicious, fresh and healthy. It’s made with tomato, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil. Then we drizzle extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar over all.

Since there are just a few ingredients in this dish, it’s important to use the best, most fresh ingredients you can find and buy.
So for the tomatoes, the best are homegrown because they have the absolute best flavor. That’s what I did. Mine came fresh off the vine in my backyard.
Next comes the basil. Again fresh is the best when it’s just picked. Don’t even bother using dried basil in this recipe or you will be disappointed.
When it comes to the mozzarella, use the freshest, packed in water.
With olive oil use extra virgin and buy the best you can afford. Same with the balsamic vinegar.
If you ever get the chance to visit Italy, you must try this dish there. You will find that the Italian people only use the freshest ingredients and it makes a world of difference. It’s just amazing.
Another thing you can do that I didn’t show in the video. Sorry I forgot. Grab some fresh garlic and slice a clove in half and rub it over your toasted french bread before spreading on the butter or olive oil. Oh my is that good. You get this mild garlic flavor on the bread that is out of this world! Yummy! Try it and you will see what I’m talking about.
Also if you are making the bruschetta version of this recipe (using the french bread) you can also add a little salt and pepper if you wish, though it’s not necessary.
I hope you enjoy this video and if you did please give it a thumbs up.
