This traditional Italian salad – notice how the green, white and red colours of this salad are, patriotically, the same as the colours of the Italian national flag – is so simple to put together. But it looks fab and tastes even better, with the sensational flavours of the Mediterranean. Just the thing to enjoy with a pal on a hot summer’s day...

Ingredients

  • 6 small tomatoes
  • 125g pkt of mozzarella pearls, drained
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar, to serve
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to serve

If you put a finger over the top of the bottles of balsamic vinegar and olive oil you can “dot the plate” to give it that professional look!

Method

  1. Cut the tomatoes in half, and arrange on two plates with the mozzarella pearls and basil leaves.
  2. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
