CAPRESE TART & COLORS OF ITALY

CAPRESE TART & COLORS OF ITALY
“Caprese “is very popular antipasto or starter of Italian Cuisine, because it’s similar to Italian Flag Color: Bright Red, Pure White and Brilliant Green. Fresh basil, Plum Tomatoes and Mozzarella are the key ingredients of this salad. In Italy this tri color salad is called” Insalata Caprese” means Salad of Capri. My twist of the recipe is caprese served in the tart shell. Caprese Tart is perfect starter for summer party or can be served as light bite.

12 Pastry Tart Shells, Ready made
4 Plum Tomatoes, finely chopped
200 gm. Fresh Mozzarella Ball
½ cup Fresh Basil

2 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 cup Iceberg Lettuce Ribbons
METHOD
